In this short book, Sam Harris and Maajid Nawaz invite you to join an urgently needed conversation: Is Islam a religion of peace or war? Is it amenable to reform? Why do so many Muslims seem drawn to extremism? What do words like Islamism, jihadism, and fundamentalism mean in today's world? Remarkable for the breadth and depth of its analysis, this dialogue between a famous atheist and a former radical is all the more startling for its decorum. Harris and Nawaz have produced something genuinely new: they engage one of the most polarizing issues of our time - fearlessly and fully - and actually make progress.

Would you listen to Islam and the Future of Tolerance again? Why?

This dialogue is so helpful and needed. No doubt I will go back to IFT to stay familiar with the issues, and stay aware of my own prejudices.

What did you like best about this story?

What I appreciated most was the respect Harris and Nawaz showed each other while pursuing a truthful appraisal of Islam.

Any additional comments?

The only thing I didn't like was that both men were clearly reading. But after all, it is a book. I guess I wished it came off a little more dramatized, like they were in the same room having this conversation.

  • The Pilgrim's Progress

  • From This World to That Which Is to Come
  • By: John Bunyan

For 300 years, The Pilgrim's Progress has remained perhaps the best-loved and most read of devotional fictions. In plain yet powerful and moving language, Bunyan tells the story of Christian's struggle to attain salvation and the Gates of Heaven. He must pass through the Slough of Despond, ward off the temptations of Vanity Fair, and fight the monstrous Apollyon. In Part II, his wife and children follow the same path, helped and protected by Great-heart, until for them, too, "the trumpets sound on the other side."

This narrator will keep you lost in the drama of the story. Takes about 13 hours of listening. Syncs well between my phone, iPad, and laptop.
