TITLE: A concise introduction to Islam

LIST PRICE: $6.95

ABOUT THE BOOK:

In A Concise Introduction to Islam, Dr. Jerald Dirks presents a brief, simple,

and straightforward introduction to one of the world’s most misunderstood

religions. The book consists of six easily understood chapters. The

FIRST chapter focuses on the commonalities that exist between Islam and

the Judaeo-Christian tradition, including similarities in prophetic history and

in ethical and spiritual teachings. The SECOND chapter clears up prevalent

misconceptions that exist about Islam, while the THIRD chapter presents the

fundamental pillars of Islamic belief and practice. In the FOURTH chapter,

Dr. Dirks examines four of the major differences between Islam and Christianity,

including the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ, the crucifixion event, the

nature of Jesus, and the nature of God. Finally, the last two chapters deal

with “hot potato” topics. For example, the FIFTH chapter looks at the Islamic

concept of Jihad and how that concept has been misunderstood and distorted

by some so-called Muslims. The SIXTH chapter examines and clarifies the

role of women in Islam and presents the evidence supporting the proposition

that Islam is actually a champion of women’s rights.

The authors who have penned for amana the biographies of Prophet Muhammad, Jesus and Abraham have taken care to maintain the psychological environment in which these prophets and their companions lived and operated. In so doing, the authors have fully relied on the Qur'an and the ahadith to present the exemplary lives of these noble men.

Also cited in the books are some of the prayers and sayings of these prophets of Islam that can inspire anyone to establish life of piety, equality, moral responsibility and social justice.
