This general introduction to Islam makes a valuable information resource for KS3 and 4 Religious Education students. Written by a highly experienced author of books on religion for children, it covers the foundation and history of Islam. It continues by exploring the beliefs, teachings and practices of modern Islam, which includes a look at sacred texts and places of worship. The final chapters focus on Christianity and society, and its role in the modern world. A special feature of the book is the 'in our own words' panels in which practising Muslims give a personal perspective on being a Muslim today. There are numerous panels that give more detailed information on specific aspects such as the Islamic months and arranged marriages, as well as quoting important texts. Wayland Weblinks throughout the book direct readers to specifically chosen websites, via the Wayland Weblinks website, for further information. Imaginatively chosen photos with detailed captions extend the range of information presented. Maps show the distribution of believers around the world and the spread of Islam from Arabia.An historical timeline, glossary and index all contribute to making this a highly engaging and accessible source of information and thus an essential work of reference for the 11-14 age range.
