22. September 2011 What Everyone Needs to Know
Since the terrorist attacks of September 11th, there has been an overwhelming demand for information about Islam, and recent events - the war in Iraq, terrorist attacks both failed and successful, debates throughout Europe over Islamic dress, and many others - have raised new questions in the minds of policymakers and the general public. This newly updated edition of What Everyone Needs to Know about Islam is the best single source for clearly presented, objective information about these new developments, and for answers to questions about the origin and traditions of Islam. Editor of The Oxford Encyclopedia of Modern Islam and The Oxford History of Islam, and author of The Future of Islam and many other acclaimed works, John L. Esposito is one of America's leading authorities on Islam. This brief and readable book remains the first place to look for up-to-date information on the faith, customs, and political beliefs of the more than one billion people who call themselves Muslims.

To have a peaceful future demands a more inclusive sense of pluralism and tolerance built upon mutual respect and understanding. But this cannot be achieved without knowledge of what Islam teaches and what Muslims believe. This book is an excellent tool towards that knowledge. Dr. Joe Seferta, Renew

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellet Information 12. Oktober 2012
Von lmr - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Professor Esposito is skilled with words. When I had the opportunity to take a single class under him, I went to the effort of getting this book, and looking it over. I found it extremely informative, easy to read, and a true eye-opener.

Sadly, too many Americans are ignorant about Islam and Muslims. It breeds fear, it breeds hate. If everyone went to an expert like Esposito and said "Teach me!" They could learn a lot more. However, the experts are a little busy. Luckily they write books, and this is the next-best thing to sitting down with the Professor himself.

Get it, read it. It can open your eyes, if you open your mind.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Providing Precise Answers to Questions on Islam 19. Juni 2013
Von Siraj I. Mufti - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The question and answer format adopted in this book responds succinctly to what is often asked. And these were actually the questions posed to Professor Esposito at various locations during his appearances.

3.0 von 5 Sternen There is no single authority on what "Islam" represents. 9. August 2013
Von Afroze F. Zaidi-Jivraj - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The basic premise of this book is admirable, that is to inform non-Muslims about the essential features of Islam and Muslims of which they might otherwise be unaware. However, from a theological perspective, this approach would have been much more effective if the book was composed of contributions from a variety of specialists on the subject, rather than just being a reflection of Esposito's understanding of Islam. The novice reader will not pick up on the sectarian bias* (subtle as it may be) in Esposito's authorship. Furthermore, using a singular voice and sometimes rudimentary explanations to describe what are often complex religious beliefs or historical events can be a dangerous approach, the result of which is an essentialisation of Islam as a faith which might unwittingly achieve the opposite effect of what this book intends. Islam today reflects diversity of beliefs and views, but unfortunately Esposito's unilateral narrative fails to convey this diversity to those unfamiliar with Islam.

*E.g., Esposito's claim that Shii followed Ali because of a belief that successorship should be hereditary, when in fact the Shii have evidence in terms of ahadith (sayings) of the Prophet stating his decision to appoint Ali as successor, and the original followers of Ali based their allegiance on these ahadith over and above anything else. Moreover, far from having nepotistic origins, the right of Ali to lead is supported by evidence that he possessed greater qualities in terms of piety, good character and leadership than any other companion of the Prophet.
4.0 von 5 Sternen The title is correct 12. Juni 2014
Von Allan W. Grundstrom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Esposito presents a clear and fact laden introduction to Islam. Lots of things a Western reader should know about the history and important beliefs of Islam. He does not gloss over the actions of extremists, but emphasizes their relatively small percentage of the muslim population. He is sympathetic with muslims and believes that the information in his book will make the reader more understanding and respectful than before.

The style is clear and understandable, but the Q&A structure of the book leads to a good bit of repetition: not entirely bad.
