This is not for beginners or average readers. Both Muslims and non Muslims theolgians and thinkers will benefit from this book Khan. One person found this helpful. Its a good reference book. Some chapters I feel like the authors are somewhat bias towards certain schools of thought! This is very interesting reading. The articles are well written, scholarly, and very informative.
This is a book for scholars and not going to be useful for the person with a passing interest in Islam. Excellent read and reference! Good news this is the kind of reference book that should be on the shelf of every student, researcher or teacher.

These paintings were intended to glorify what many statesmen even then regarded as a crime. Like most documents pertaining to the expulsion, they told its story from the point of view of the victors. I wanted to tell a different story; of how what was then the most powerful state in Europe was driven by fear and bigotry to destroy a defenceless minority and act against its own material interests. These tendencies are present in every society and in every era.
I hoped then, as I hope now, that Blood and Faith might make readers more alert to the destructive possibilities in our own. Poignant and often tragic scenes unfolded as the Moriscos were brought to the waiting ships. One old man arrived in Valencia declaring his wish to be buried on Muslim soil but dropped dead while boarding his ship.
