The volumes in the Religions of the World series surveys religions that have had a major impact on the history of the world and that continue to play a role in the relationships between nations and ethnic groups. All aspects—including roots and founding, primary beliefs and cultural activities, the way the faiths are viewed by the rest of the world, and the experience of growing up as a member of the religion—are examined.
Based in the same scriptures as both Judaism and Christianity, Islam has many similarities with the major Western religions. In the post-9/11 climate of terrorism and fear, Islam remains one of the world's most misunderstood faiths. It is now more important than ever for non-Muslims to learn to understand the religion founded by the prophet Muhammad.
