Frederick M. Dennys extensive fieldwork, experience, and scholarship, combined with his engaging writing style and passion for the subject, sets An Introduction to Islam, Third Edition apart.

It places Islam within a cultural, historical, political, social, and religious context and examines its connections with Jewish and Christian teachings and practices. The texts integration of the doctrinal and devotional elements of Islam enables students to see how Muslims think and live engendering understanding and breaking down stereotypes. An Introduction to Islam also reviews pre-Islamic Near Eastern religious history so students can see how Islam developed within an extended family of similar traditions.

This chapter focuses on Islam and Muslims in the post-9/11 world. Book jacket.
