Islam: A Short Guide to the Faith achieves the near-impossible: it is at once pithy and comprehensive, authoritative and accessible, provocative and reliable. Introductions to Islam over the last decade have generally increased in quantity and decreased in quality. This short book, which familiarizes the newcomer with the essential history, doctrines, and institutions of the religious tradition, is a salutary exception to that pattern.
Chase Robinson, City University of New York
This attractive, reader-friendly volume has the advantage of being written not by one author but by a group of scholars, each a well-established authority. It thus stands out as something special compared to many other introductions to Islam. . . . Will certainly be very welcome to teachers, students, and general readers.
Muhammad Abdel Haleem, University of London
This factual, jargon-free, and to-the-point book tells general readers just what they need to know about Islam.

"Reviews in Religion and Theology"
"[This book] is faithfully and carefully put together to guide non-Muslims to a better understanding of Islam. . . . It would be a good addition to the library of any non-Muslim religious leaders. It also offers useful and interesting reading for anyone who might wish to know more about Islam."
"Critique"
"A helpful resource. . . . Can serve to sharpen our comprehension of specific details and in that light the glossary is worth the price of the book."
"Booklist"
"This book is thoroughly accessible to a general reader and a much-needed and welcome addition to any collection.""
