Current events make this book more significant in inter-cultural understanding. If our press read it before writing their copy, perhaps they'd be more cautious about labeling terrorists as "Islamic Fundamentalists" and creating more hate and more misunderstanding. Terrorists are no more Muslims than Jerry Falwell is representative of mainstream Christianity.
Make it your business to educate yourself about the billion Muslims we share our world with, and make sure this book is part of your education. Without it, your understanding is incomplete.
bridge the gaps of ignorance and the stereotypes of Muslims in America. Mr. Findley, gives a good perspective of Islam from his years of travel, and interfaith dialog from his point of view as an American and Christian.
I believe some of the reviews of this book have been full of bias and hatred. Its not fare that every book or thought on Islamic issues be tied to September 11th. Would it be fare to tie the Oklahoma bombing to Christianity just because a crazy man claimed to be Christian, or the many bombing of various clinics in this country, or other past evils in the world, Europe.... EVERY RELIGION HAS EXTREMIST!!! What the author is trying to say that there is a powerful anti- Islamic force in America and that our society should check its bias, sometimes racist ideologies toward Muslims and Arabs.
Should an entire religion always be related to to one act of evil. The Bible says, (MAT 7:2) when you judge, judge fairly with the same measure that you judge...
Can a gentleman write a book with the intentions on united people of different faiths with out getting slammed by narrow minded obvious foes?
The author's Islamic base was limited and in parts flawed as he related to dogmatic issues. Women leading prayers in mixed or all male group on page 147. His insistence on it being ok for women to shake hands or not wear scarves just because some do and some don't. Islam doesn't have to and shouldn't conform or be molded into any Western mores. I agree with his basis belief, that we share a common belief, believing in the God of Ibrahim.
I totally agree with Mr.Findley's claim that "sometimes false images of Islam arise from malice..." (page 68)I believe it is done from pure laziness and ignorance and some times for political means.
I challenge some of you to go to your nearest library and visit the micro film room. Read a newspaper from the 1800, 50's and 60's and check out the tone of each decade. Public hangings of African Americans were legal in this country. There was a time when Jews were hated just as African American. Should an African American eternally hate Whites based on this American holocaust? No, and American shouldn't hate all Arabs because of September 11th.
Mr.Findley book at least challenges us to look at Muslims and Islam from another perspective-one without bias. Please read the book.
