No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam

by Reza Aslan

Book Reviews

"This is a fascinating book. Reza Aslan tells the story of Islam with one eye on faith and another on history. The result is a textured, nuanced account that presents a living, breathing religion shaped by centuries of history and culture." --Fareed Zakaria, author of The Future of Freedom, Illiberal Democracy at Home and Abroad

"Elegant, accessible, and informed by historical scholarship, No god but God offers a wonderful view into the rich world of early Islam. Reza Aslan brings to the life of Muhammed and the story of classical Islam a lyricism and deft touch reminiscent of Roberto Calasso at his best." --Noah Feldman, author of After Jihad and What We Owe Iraq

"Reza Aslan tells a story of Islamic faith, history, and culture that comes alive. No god but God is an engaging, creative, insightful, and provocative book. It is a reminder that beyond the terrorism headlines, Islam, like its Abrahamic cousins, has been and remains a rich, dynamic spiritual path for the vast majority of its adherents." --John L. Esposito, university professor and founding director of the Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding, Georgetown University, and author of Unholy War: Terror in the Name of Islam and What Everyone Needs to Know About Islam

"A fascinating account of Islam's evolution. Aslan's book should be required reading for all analysts and policymakers interested in the Muslim world. It's a terrific read -- no easy feat for such a difficult subject." --Steven Cook, Next Generation Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations

"Reza Aslan counters superficial notions of a clash of civilizations with a deep and exhilarating exploration of the fifteen-hundred-year-old clash within the civilization of Islam. Distinguishing concepts like faith and religion, Islamism and Islamic fundamentalism, in ways that shed vital new light on the morning's headlines. No god but God is a passionate argument for the shared history of the world's religions. An essential contribution to the most important issue of our time." --Tom Reiss, author of The Orientalist
