Who Speaks For Islam?: What a Billion Muslims Really Think Who Speaks For Islam?: What a Billion Muslims Really Think by John L. Esposito


My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is basically a summary of the findings of Gallup polls about Islamic attitudes and concerns around the world. Perhaps the most interesting was that Muslims’ greatest grievance about the United States is that Americans do not respect them and their religion. It seems to me that if we want to make peace with Islam we have to learn as much as we can about it, while keeping an open mind. That’s a good way to read this book as well.
