Islam without Extremes

Think 2 Comments 1

Hour 2:           As authoritarian rule continues to be challenged across the Middle East, what role will Islam play in the coming power structures and could a future of enlightened reason and freedom coexist with religion in the Islamic world? We’ll spend this hour with journalist Mustafa Akyol, author of “Islam without Extremes: A Muslim Case for Liberty” (W. W. Norton & Company, 2011). Akyol will speak at the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture this evening.

    Krys — I listened to this segment Thursday and enjoyed it very much.  I am going to buy Mr. Akyol’s book this weekend.  It was great to hear his points of view/explanations on Islam and the Middle East from someone who lives there.

    Thanks for all of the great interviews you do each day.  I love your show.
