With Dialogue Comes UNDERSTANDING
These days, Islam is no stranger to controversy. It seems everyone has an opinion about Islam or Muslims. Have you ever wondered what a regular, practicing Muslim would say? Have you ever wondered what Muslims living in the West tell their friends and neighbors when another round of sensational news hits the airwaves? Then this book is for you. Read actual conversation transcripts of everyday people asking real questions and getting straight answers about Islam.
Why These Books are SPECIAL
What Would a Muslim Say is a series of books documenting my experiences as an interfaith volunteer. Since 2009, I have facilitated dialogue with many different people, answering questions about Islam and addressing misconceptions. The conversations in these books are real. Some are curious, some are concerned, some are hostile, some are academic, and some are soul-searching.
This is the first book in the series, covering a variety of conversations from 2009 to 2011. In this book, you will learn about:
- How the Qur'an Informs a Muslim’s Faith
- Faith, Sex, and Marriage in Islam
- Jihad and Freedom in the Modern World
- Islamic Worship, Prayer, Charity, and Pilgrimage
- Salvation and Tolerance in Islam
. . . and many more topics; just "Look Inside" the paperback edition and check the Contents.

These are timely books. There are many questions, fears, and misconceptions about Islam and Muslims. These books can answer questions, build bridges, and promote understanding. If you would like to learn about Muslims and Islam, but you prefer an informal conversational approach rather than a didactic academic approach, then this book is for you.
