"Though it is the fastest-growing religion in the world, Islam remains shrouded in ignorance and fear. What is the essence of this ancient faith? Is it a religion of peace or of war? How does Allah differ from the God of Jews and Christians? Can an Islamic state be founded on democratic values such as pluralism and human rights? A scholar of comparative religions, Reza Aslan has earned international acclaim for the passion and clarity he has brought to these questions. In No god but God, challenging the "clash of civilizations" mentality that has distorted our view of Islam, Aslan explains this faith in all its complexity, beauty, and compassion."--BOOK JACKET.… (mais)

I walked away from this book learning a good amount about Islam. Aslan covers its beginnings in Pre-Islamic Arabia and continues through history as the religion splinters into sects -- the same fate that befell Christianity and Judaism. He ends the book believing that Islam is currently going through its own Reformation now, and hopes that it goes back to its fundamentals, its core principles of pluralism and egalitarianism.

I couldn't help but feel an underlying bias that permeated this work since Aslan is himself a Muslim. It's not that one can't write about their own religion objectively, but sometimes I felt he underplayed certain statements found in the Quran (calls for violence and Muhammad having a child bride are some bits I remember reading). It's important to try and avoid the mistake of injecting our own beliefs, morals, and societal norms into the past simply because things that we deem horrible today weren't seen in that light in the past.

Overall, I enjoyed the book however I will look into other authors for a more well-rounded understanding of Islam. ( )

This book was compelling, a quick read, and a great survey on the faith and its history. It was fun to read, but better still I feel like a better world citizen with this bit deeper depth of understanding Aslan offers. Easy to digest for sure. ( )

I can't recommend this book highly enough! No other work has had such a profound influence on my understanding of the current state of Islam. Whenever people are discussing the Middle East or Islamic terrorism, this is the book I reference more than any other.

In our current age, this book is an absolute must read! ( )

What a fantastic ending for a wonderful book that is definitely worth owning and rereading and referencing multiple times. I cannot praise this book highly enough. Everyone needs to read it particularly those were considering what's going on currently from a perspective of Islam versus other religions. There's no versus: we are all in this together. ( )

THESE are rough times for Islam. It is not simply that frictions have intensified lately between Muslims and followers of other faiths. There is trouble, and perhaps even greater trouble, brewing inside the Abode of Peace itself, the notional Islamic ummah or nation that comprises a fifth of humanity.

News reports reveal glimpses of such trouble -- for instance, in the form of flaring strife between Sunni and Shiite Muslims in places like Iraq and Pakistan. Yet the greater tensions, while similarly rooted in the distant past, are less visible to the wider world. The rapid expansion of literacy among Muslims in the past half-century, and of access to new means of communication in the last decade, have created a tremendous momentum for change. Furious debates rage on the Internet, for example, about issues like the true meaning of jihad, or how to interpret and apply Islamic law, or how Muslim minorities should engage with the societies they live in.

In the arid, desolate basin of Mecca, surrounded on all sides by the bare mountains of the Arabian desert, stands a small, nondescript sanctuary that the ancient Arabs refer to as the Ka'ba: the Cube.
