Summary
In the months after September 11, 2001, American Muslims heard the familiar sounds of Islam being defined by others. Commentators, politicians, scholars, and wealthy terrorists were busily telling Muslims the "real meaning" of Islam. Western Muslims knew something had to be done. They gathered informally to discuss the past, the present, and how things ought to be. Over time, they began to conceive, then voice, then, finally, put to paper ideas about how they might define Islam in this century. This book is a bold collection of voices in the vanguard of the faith, voices of men and women who remain devout and utterly convinced of Islam's power to help create a just, ordered, and beautiful world but who are also unafraid to be critical of those who would distort Islam for violent or political ends.--From publisher description
