Understanding the History, Beliefs, and Culture

Series: Issues in Focus Today

By Julie Williams

Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world and has over one billion followers. Most countries in the Middle East are predominantly Muslim, and Muslims make up the majority population in at least fifty-six countries. Despite this, Islam is not very well understood by non-Muslims in North America. In ISLAM: UNDERSTANDING THE HISTORY, BELIEFS, AND CULTURE, author Julie Williams explains the history of this great religion and the different ways it is observed in the world today. She addresses some of the controversial questions and the current events relating to Islam in order to help readers gain an understanding of Islamic religion and culture.
