Winner of Oprah's first Chutzpah Award for boldness, Irshad Manji is among the world's most visible - and vocal - Muslim reformers. In this audio book, narrated by her, Irshad explains the disturbing attitudes with which too many of her fellow Muslims practice Islam today: Arab cultural tribalism posing as pure faith. An uncritical approach to the Quran as the final and therefore superior word of God. And a rejection of universal human rights as if they are incompatible with the Divine. As a faithful Muslim, Irshad shows that Islam has the raw material to rectify these injustices. Irshad offers a practical vision of how reform-minded Muslim can empower women, promote respect for religious minorities and foster a competition of ideas. This vision builds on ijtihad (ij-tee-had), Islam's lost tradition of independent thinking. Irshad Manji's message for Muslims and non-Muslims? Dare to ask questions - out loud. In this audio book, her voices rings clearly, compassionately and passionately. You will love the musical surprises, too!

Bonus Audio: Purchasers of this title also receive How I Got Moral Courage - And You Can, Too, a speech by Irshad Manji at New York University.

    " This Muslim woman is calling on people of all faiths, but especially her own, to stand up about violence, terrorism, and unequal treatment of women. What a great book written by an extremely brave woman. "

    " excellent thought provoking read - the title of the book will put off narrow minded muslims but if you get over that, you are in for a treat - written as an honest critique of the religion, from an insider's perspective. "
