There is much that has been written about Islam and Muslims in the past decade, sadly most by non-Muslims with an agenda. This, however, is an excellent introductory book into Islam. It provides the reader with glimpses into the Qur'an (the holy text) with scientific data to support the information presented. One example is the discussion in the Qur'an on embryonic development. The second half of this book provides answers to such questions as "What Does Islam Say About Terrorism?" (p. 59). A good introductory book for new Muslims or anyone interested in learning about Islam and Muslims from a Muslim's perspective.
