In this deeply informed exchange, Sam Harris and Maajid Nawaz present an antidote to the polarizing rhetoric and obscurantism that define our time: honest dialogue. Guided by a commitment to the belief that no idea is above scrutiny and no people beneath dignity, Harris and Nawaz challenge each other, and their readers, to discover common ground.

  1. Partsinlaga med saklig ton
    Lars Åhlin, 31 maj 2016

    Trevligt skriven, med välunderbyggda och tydliga resonemang. Gillar den sakliga och mot meningsmotståndare respektfulla tonen. Men jag vill gärna höra synpunkter på innehållet från dem som varnar för islam. Vissa invändningar kan jag själv formulera, men saknar tillräcklig kunskap för att bedöma alla resonemang.

  2. Måste läsas!
    Albert, 29 oktober 2015

    Sam och Maajid gör ett extremt viktigt jobb. Deras tankar måste få större spridning i Sverige. Deras intellekt är enastående.

In this conversation Sam Harris and Maajid Nawaz achieve what so many who take part in the debate on Islam and the West fail to accomplish: a civil but honest dialogue. The result is as illuminating as it is fascinating. Courteous and at times even chivalrous, the two men address every thorny issue on Islam, issues that lead so many others into wild shouting matches, personal attacks, and accusations of Islamophobia. In this gem of a book the authors lay it all out and set the rest of us a great example: that an incisive debate on Islam between a believer and a non-believer is attainable. Given the importance and the urgency of the topic we must all read it and follow in their footsteps.--Ayaan Hirsi Ali, author of "Infidel," "Nomad," and "Heretic."

Given the importance and the urgency of the topic, we must all read it and follow in their footsteps.--Ayaan Hirsi Ali, author of "Infidel," "Nomad," and "Heretic" [A] wise little volume.--Ray Olson"Booklist" (09/01/2015) Provocative and profane "Islam and the Future of Tolerance" exemplifies the virtues of open dialogue All Harris and Nawaz seek is to give voice to the spirit of rebellion and reformation smoldering in the lands of Islam. Forcing it into flame will doubtless be a long time coming, but these two men should be lauded for endeavoring to provide a spark.--Brian Stewart"National Review" (10/07/2015)" Back in Islam's formative centuries, the engagement of Muslims with their ideological opponents helped them to forge the doctrines and traditions of their nascent faith--and perhaps now, as Maajid Nawaz locks horns with Sam Harris, we are at the start of another stage in Islam's evolution. It is certainly a privilege to read their conversation, and to enjoy a flavor of those great debates between rival scholars that were once staged for the entertainment of the Caliph in Baghdad.--Tom Holland, historian and author of In the Shadow of the Sword: The Birth of Islam and the Rise of the Global Arab Empire Free thought and rational inquiry once characterized the relative liberalism and humanism of ancient Muslim societies and civilizations: the leading Sunni Imam, Abu Hanifa, would debate atheists inside the great mosques of Iraq; the Abbasid caliphs hosted debates amongst the leaders of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam at their courts in Baghdad; the Mughal emperors engaged in debate with Christians, Hindus, and Buddhists. Sam Harris and Maajid Nawaz should be commended for conducting a frank and wide-ranging conversation about a number of key issues around religion, reform, and Islam in the modern world. Nawaz's approach is based upon detailed familiarity with extremist worldviews, and with the history and tradition of reform theology and renewal within Islam that desperately needs to be amplified. I hope that this debate will be a fruitful endeavor, and illustrate that, in our increasingly-polarized world, it is possible and even normal for people with different viewpoints to have a civilized conversation and to learn from each other.--Sheikh Dr. Usama Hasan, Islamic scholar The ideas it leaves behind--about religion, politics, values and interpretation--linger long after the book is finished. They seem a vital contribution to the current conversation, so often defined by the real or imagined divi
