Dictionary of Islam

Follow me on:

The Oxford Dictionary of Islam Book of the Day: The Oxford Dictionary of Islam, edited by John L. Esposito. Publisher: Oxford University Press.

Islam is the second largest religion in the world; in some regions, it is the fastest growing religious faith. Everywhere that Islamic regions intersect with areas dominated by other religions, there is conflict and strife - sometimes violent conflict. It's clear that understanding the beliefs and history of Islam is important, but it's also just as clear that most Westerners hardly know anything about this religion.
