It's no longer uncommon to hear the names Leila or Mohammed on campus, at a neighborhood park, or in the board meeting. Since September 11, Americans are more curious about the followers of Islam. They know they can no longer afford to be ignorant of such an influential and powerful world religion. This book provides the reader with an insider's view of how North American Muslims think, exposing some of the myths about them, and practical steps on how to establish friendships that can point to Christ.
