                        "THE RELIGION OF ISLAM"

                         For Your Further Study

For more in-depth studies on the subject of Islam, I found the following
books helpful:

Islam - The Way Of Submission (Solomon Nigosian, Crucible, Great
Britain, 1987, 209 pages)

(From the cover) In this new study, intended for both Muslim and
non-Muslim readers, Solomon Nigosian encapsulates and portrays the
unique spirit of Islam, which pervades every aspect of Muslim life and
unites millions of individuals all over the world in a common bond.

Islam - A Short History (Karen Armstrong, Modern Library Chronicles, New
York, 2000, 222 pages)

(From the cover)  Islam: A Short History begins with the flight of
Muhammad and his family from Medina in the seventh century and the
subsequent founding of the first mosques.  It recounts the origins of
the split between Shii and Sunni Muslims, and the emergence of the Sufi
mysticism; the spread of Islam throughout North Africa, the Levant, and
Asia; the shattering effect on the Muslim world of the Crusades; the
flowering of imperial Islam in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries
into the world's greatest and most sophisticated power; and the origins
and impact of revolutionary Islam.  It concludes with an assessment of
Islam today and its challenges.

A Resource For The Study Of Islam (Ney Rieber, Star Bible Publications,
Ft. Worth, TX, 1993, 227 pages)

(From the author's preface)  "I began this study to meet the challenges
I encountered while teaching the Bible in prisons.  As my efforts to
learn about Islam progressed, I was continually frustrated by a lack of
detailed and dependable material on the subject.  Realizing that others
might find themselves in the same condition, I determined to make my
research and some of my conclusions generally available.  Materials are
grouped by categories that I personally found reasonable.  I hope that
you find them logical, also."
