An American Imam offers straightforward answers for today's toughest questions about Islam, and a vision for a reconciliation between Islam and the West.
In contrast to Bernard Lewis, Imam Feisal will argue that Islamic principles support the fundamental values of a pluralistic, democratic society. Unfortunately, in Islam today, the fundamentalists are often drowning out the democratic voices.
The US and UK are partially culpable for this state of affairs, historically supporting oppressive regimes in the Arab world. But ultimately, Imam Feisal's is a hopeful book, laying out the reasons for the current dissonance between Islam and the West, and offering a foundation and plan for improved relations led by American Muslims.
