Controversies in Contemporary Islam, Paperback / softback Book

Controversies in Contemporary Islam Paperback / softback


This book helps to deepen our understanding of the varieties of contemporary Islam and the issues that are of most concern to Muslims today.

Oliver Leaman explores some of the controversies and debates that exist within Islam and between Islam and other religions.

He considers how the religion can be defined by looking at the contrast between competing sets of beliefs, and arguments amongst Muslims themselves over the nature of the faith.

Areas covered include: Qur'anic interpretation, gender, finance, education, and nationalism.

Examples are taken from a range of contexts and illustrate the diversity of approaches to Islam that exists today.
