Nabeel becomes friends with a young man who builds a friendship with him and they become friendly enough to challenge each others beliefs. Nabeel challenges Davids’ belief in Christianity, as he attempts to educate David in the ways of Islam. Nabeel finds himself questioning some of the things he believes. He applies a critical, reason based investigation to the tenets of Islam. As he does he finds himself moving away from his long held beliefs. He presents his logical, rational arguments as he moves through his investigation. He also presents his emotional journey as his moves through his investigation. This is a clear and concise critique of Islam by someone who was deeply invested in it.
Did I learn anything? I learned so much about Islam and even some things about Christianity. I have ordered a copy of this from Amazon so that I can re-read it and mark it up. I will read it again before March when our book group will be discussing it.
What is with the title of the review? There were so many footnotes and words that I didn’t know that I had one bookmark where I was in the book and one in the footnotes and glossary section of the book.
