Summary
This book explains the concept of Islamic ""da'wah"", or missionary activity, as it has developed in contemporary Western contexts. Poston traces the transition from the early ""external-institutional"" missionary approach impracticable in modern Western society, to an ""internal-personal"" approachwhich aims at the conversion of individuals and seeks to influence society from the bottom upwards. Poston also combines the results of a questionnaire-survey with an analysis of published testimonies to identify significant traits that distinguish converts to Islam
