Review Text

  • By Mark Twain on 28 November 2006

    Dr Turner is my lecturer at University, so obviously this book is particularly useful for me, but for anyone else interested in Islam or studying it, i would absolutely recommend this book. It is clear, to the point, and doesnt need any prior knowledge, but it is also incredibly interesting. A good and topical read for students especially.
