Book Hour: “Islam Without Extremes: A Muslim Case for Liberty” with author Mustafa Akyol


(00:00) Our perceptions of Islam are created by media overviews. Akyol’s amazing book enjoyably covers the history and interpretations of Islam. The issues of traditional versus rational approaches to Islam are just as real as they are in other faiths. Muslims also consider the impact of literal adherence to the Qur’an in a changing world as opposed to spiritual intent. This book is a “must read”. Our conversation will only whet your desire to read it.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
