Summary:Given the focus of world attention on Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf in recent years, Dr. John Renard offers a concise, readable, and sensitive introduction to the beliefs and worldview of those who profess Islam. While most studies of a world religion do so topically, thematically reviewing doctrines, laws, and specific faith principles, Renard takes an interesting and more engaging tack.
