Summary
"Part memoir, part passionate call for liberty, reason, and doing work that matters, [this book] the tale of how the Internet opened the eyes and heart of a once fearful young Muslim to a world beyond the dogmatism of his upbringing, and recounts his transformation into a defiant digital activist"--Amazon.com
Summary
Sudanese-born Malaysian author Amir Ahmad Nasr shares a conversational account of his expatriate upbringing and the evolution of his Muslim faith. Through internet bloggers in Egypt, Nasr discovered that not all Muslims shared the fundamentalist religious and political beliefs he'd learned in his youth. Through the metaphor of a love affair, My Isl@m (based on Nasr's own popular blog) relates how his faith has changed through the years. Readers needn't know much about Islam to enjoy his smart yet accessible views. - Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
