From the Author
secular authoritarianism versus Islamic authoritarianism,
there is a third, and promising, way: Islamic liberalism.

It is awesome to learn how so many believes doesn't come from the Quran, but were manipulated for political reasons in the past and presented as part of the Quran. Let's hope that with traveling abroad to study , liberalization will find its way in the Middle East and as women are studying they will be a force to shape the government and attain more liberty.
It seems at times that there is no option but that Moslem nations will be authoritarian, with little respect for individual liberties. However, Mustafa Akyol builds a hopeful case for a renewal within the nations of Islam; he shows that there has been an historical (and theological) basis for hope.
I highly recommend this very readable and informative book.
