An Introduction to Islam, Fourth Edition, provides students with a thorough, unified and topical introduction to the global religious community of Islam.  In addition, the author's extensive field work, experience, and scholarship combined with his engaging writing style and passion for the subject also sets his text apart.

An Introduction to Islam, places Islam within a cultural, political, social, and religious context, and examines its connections with Judeo-Christian morals.  Its integration of the doctrinal and devotional elements of Islam enables readers to see how Muslims think and live – engendering understanding and breaking down stereotypes. 

This text also reviews pre-Islamic history so readers can see how Islam developed historically.
