An Introduction to Islam in the 21st Century provides an engaging depiction of Islam as a living religion. Exploring Islam's historical context and core elements of the tradition, the authors provide a global perspective that captures the diversity of Islam in different regions and countries. Other topics include the phenomenon of militancy, Islamophobia, and how Islam is taught in the West. By examining trends in different regions the book demonstrates that unlike its image, particularly in the West, of a static and monolithic tradition, Islam is a fluid and dynamic religion with tremendous diversity.
