Review:

Abdullahi An-Na`im - Charles Howard Candler Professor of Law at Emory University"With unwavering focus, clarity and scholarly confidence, Dr. Ali advances our understanding of profound ethical questions far beyond the apologetics and polemics of current Islamic discourse."Ebrahim Moosa - Associate Professor of Islamic Studies in the Department of Religion and director of the Center for the Study of Muslim Networks at Duke University"This is compulsory reading for anyone interested in grappling with the enormously challenging questions of sexual ethics in contemporary Islam. Ali's approach is courageous without being dismissive; constructive for the present without being condescending to the past."
