Great World Religions: Islam by John L. EspositoUniversity professor and international government and media consultant John L. Esposito guides you through the facts and myths surrounding Islam and its more than 1.2 billion adherents. How familiar are you with the worlds second largest and fastest-growing religion?
Many in the West know little about the faith and are familiar only with the actions of a minority of radical extremists.
This course will help you better understand Islams role as both a religion and a way of life, and its deep impact on world affairs both historically and today. It is important to understand what Muslims believe, and also how their beliefs are carried out privately and publicly as individuals as well as members of a larger community.
The focus of this course will be to better understand Islams role as a religion and as a way of life, says Professor Esposito. In 12 lectures, moving from Muhammad to the present, from the 7th to the 21st centuries, we will explore Muslim beliefs, practices, and history in the context of its significance and impact on Muslim life and society through the ages, as well as world events today.
