ISLAM the record of Benedictine nun Sr. Mary Margaret Funk's multiyear engagement in interfaith dialogue with American Muslims in an effort to bridge the gaps that seem to divide Christianity and Islam. In the book she reflects on Islam, a religion that has challenged and transformed her and in which she has found startling similarities to her own deeply held Catholic practice and beliefs. Sr. Mary Margaret examines the controversial issues of terrorism, women's rights and economic power, and offers Christians everywhere and Catholics in particular a way of viewing Islam that is honest and authentic. The book concludes with an afterword by Islamic scholar Dr. Shahid Athar, who dialogues with and explores Sr. Mary Margaret's ideas.
