Endorsements

Chase Robinson
City University of New York
Islam: A Short Guide to the Faith achieves the near-impossible: it is at once pithy and comprehensive, authoritative and accessible, provocative and reliable. Introductions to Islam over the last decade have generally increased in quantity and decreased in quality. This short book, which familiarizes the newcomer with the essential history, doctrines, and institutions of the religious tradition, is a salutary exception to that pattern.

Muhammad Abdel Haleem
University of London
"This attractive, reader-friendly volume has the advantage of being written not by one author but by a group of scholars, each a well-established authority. It thus stands out as something special compared to many other 'introductions' to Islam. . . . Will certainly be very welcome to teachers, students, and general readers.

Ingrid Mattson
Hartford Seminary
This factual, jargon-free, and to-the-point book tells general readers just what they need to know about Islam.
