Summary
"Providing an overview of Islam's 1,400-year history, Hans Kung examines its fundamental beliefs and practices, outlines the major schools of thought, and surveys the positions of Islam on the urgent questions of the day. Deft, assured, and comprehensive, this is a sympathetic assessment of Islam by a renowned Christian theologian."--Jacket
