'This is probably the best general account of what Muslims believe ... contemporary Islam's encounter with modernity, feminism and democracy are all thoughtfully explored.' - Robert Irwin, Guardian Online
'Intended for students of religion, philosophy, social sciences and history as well as for the layperson, this work presents a scholarly and yet readable introduction to the Islamic tradition. ... Rippin presents a complex religious tradition in a condensed, well-documented, and up-to-date work.' - Roxeanne D. Marcotte
