Summary
"This introduction aims to present Islam through the lens of contemporary issues. Informed by research taken from lived religion, each chapter looks at Islam in a modern context, and explores issues relevant to the religion today. After an initial chapter providing an overview of the Islamic faith, its history and basic theological tenets, Ron Geaves moves through key contemporary themes: Islam and diversity, ethics and morality, gender, fundamentalism, and the relationship between Islam and the West. The book concludes with a final section looking at the future for Islam, its relevance in modern times, and what it can contribute to society in terms of inter-religious dialogue and harmony between different communities"--Provided by publisher
