Michael Nazir-Ali grew up in a Muslim family and is now a Christian church leader, and this book is a clear demonstration of the shared spiritual heritage between Christians and Muslims and the points at which the two faiths diverge. The effects of the terrorist attacks in America in September 2001 polarized opinion about Islam in the West. Never was the need for understanding felt so keenly, and on the other hand suspicion and fear multiplied. The Bishop of Rochester grew up in a Muslim family and here presents in easy-to-follow question and answer format all that you wanted to know but didn't like to ask about Muslims and their beliefs. This is a useful resource for all who live, work or minister in mixed communities.
