The Muslim Next Door

With the distrust of Muslims and the ignorance of Islam current in our society, I'm enjoying reading The Muslim Next Door:  The Qur'an, the Media, and that Veil Thing by Sumbul Ali-Karamali, an attorney who grew up in Southern California. The book deals with the big issues like "jihad," Sunni-Shite" differences, and "The Qur'an," but also has many charming details about her attempts to follow Muslim practices in an overwhelmingly Christian (or secular) environment.  It is very readable and informative for those who want to know more about this second-largest world faith.

We want to hear, did we miss an angle we should have covered? Should we come back to this topic? Or just give us a rating for this story. We want to hear from you.

Let me know about a good book you've read recently, or about the book that's currently on your bedside table. Why did you pick it up? Are you enjoying it?
