Summary "Key Themes for the Study of Islam provides a unique introduction to the world's second largest faith. Using English language terms as a basis for its analysis, this book demonstrates how familiar concepts in the study of religion and society can be used to explain the Islamic world in a way that is accessible to those in the West." "Dispelling the widespread myth that Muslims are alien and incomprehensible to Western society, this wide-ranging collaboration explores the complexities that make Islam so rich and diverse, and presents fresh perspectives on its place in the world. A novel approach to this fascinating religion and its culture, this book will prove an invaluable resource for students of Islamic studies and comparative religion, and an enlightening way into the subject for the general reader." --Book Jacket.
