This latest volume in the I Speak for Myself series offers short, readable, personal essays by 45 men on being Muslim in America. Some were born into the faith, others converted, and they are an amazing variety of ethnicities and races. But they are all self-aware, happy with their faith, and as American as every other New York Yankees fan or kid who grew up with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. These men have followed different faith journeys, and their stories introduce readers to the diverse branches within Islam. This simple, friendly, and necessary book belongs on high school and public library shelves. Would it could be required reading for the half of Americans who have an unfavorable view of Islam. (June)
