Getting to Know Islam

What is Islam? Well, if you're not a Muslim, it might be hard to know. But as debates about Cordoba House continue and rallies in New York rage on, it's becoming increasingly important for all of us to know more about this often misunderstood religion. To explore Islam, check out one of these excellent books - or the video. Each one presents a different angle of Islam. The more we learn, the more we can help build a more peaceful and pluralistic world.
