Journey to Islam by Murad Hoffman
A lengthy process, rich in remarkable thought-provoking events, including compelling encounters with Islamic philosophy, led the author to embrace Islam. His experiences since that time - such as his pilgrimage to Makkah - further deepened his understanding of, and identification with this 'fastest growing religion in Europe'. This 'Diary' is, however, much more than a recorded soliloquy. It is a lively introduction to Islam as such - developed in the spiritual confrontation of a Muslim intellectual of European background with the ideology and value system of post-industrial Western society.
