"The Muslim Journeys Bookshelf is not intended to be a comprehensive study of Islam as a religion or of the Muslim world in all its complexity. Rather, it seeks to introduce readers to some new and diverse perspectives on the people, places, histories, beliefs, practices, and cultures of Muslims in the United States and around the world. The collection has been organized around five themes, including American Stories, Connected Histories, Literary Reflections, Pathways of Faith and Points of View."
