A potent challenge to prevailing thoughts on politics and culture, with the goal of bringing Muslims and Christians closer.


"While evangelical Christians and Muslims differ as to the content of our faith convictions, there is agreement on the ethics our convictions inspire. By striving to heal the divide as Asma Uddin ably articulates, we can make strides as divergent faith communities toward unity of purpose in service for a thriving humanity."

-- Daniel Harrell, PhD, Editor in Chief  Christianity Today

When Islam is Not a Religion

Uddin ... presents a brilliantly paced and rigorously detailed first book arguing for equal rights for Muslims in the United States ... This book will resonate with those looking for an accessible exploration of public policy with a sprinkling of legal drama. It will be in demand by those seeking to understand the erosion of religious freedom in America.
