      How to Understand Islam

      Product Description

      With this latest volume, a well-established series turns to look at one of the major world faiths which exist alongside Christianity, and which from the beginning has constantly made its mark on political, cultural and religious history. How to Understand Islam looks at Muslim religious experience as it arises out of practices required by the law or followed simply out of devotion; it examines Muslim belief, religious observance and ethics alongside everyday piety and Islamic mystical literature. It also outlines the history of Islam from its first appearance and expansion, particularly its penetration of Africa, and shows how divisions arose within Islam and what they signify. Further chapters consider Christianity as Islam sees it, the tension between Islam and the modern Western view of the world, relations between Christians and Muslims, and the missionary activity of Islam. Like its companion volumes, How to Understand Islam has a good deal of original material to supplement the text, but in keeping with the subject, illustrations are few. Jacques Jomier is a Dominican with long experience of Islam in many parts of the world.
