Gr. 5-8. The large-format paperbacks in the World Faiths series repackage the attractive, informative pages from sections of The Kingfisher Book of Religions: Festivals, Ceremonies, and Beliefs from around the World (1999) into a series of individual titles. With several new double-page spreads and an expanded glossary, Islam goes beyond the basic introduction to include information on Islamic beliefs, art, and customs, as well as discussions of the political aspects of Islam and cultural differences among Muslims around the world. Well illustrated with color photos, this paperback offers a succinct survey of the religion. The series includes three other books: Christianity, Judaism, and Hinduism and Other Eastern Religions.
