Questions Facing the Muslim World - Harold Rhode
“Until Muslims once again allow themselves to ask questions and engage in critical examination, they are disabling themselves from accomplishing as much as they otherwise might.”
Comment: A decade ago, Bernard Lewis penned What Went Wrong? and followed that with The Crisis of Islam, both of which looked inside Islam to help the Western reader understand the cultural aspects of Islam and why it has such a hard time with modernity. In this essay, Harold Rhode, a great friend of mine and intellectual successor to Lewis (more so than anyone else of whom I am aware) nicely summarizes all the key points of which one should be aware when considering Islam today.
