Islam is one of the world's
largest – and fastest-growing – religions. Yet its most basic tenets
remain mysterious to many nonMuslims. To shed light on a religion that
has become the source of intense discussion following the Sept. 11
terrorist attacks, csmonitor.com interviewed Professor Charles A.
Kimball, chair of the Department of Religion at Wake Forest University
in Winston-Salem, NC. He is the author of three books, including
"Striving Together: A Way Forward in Christian-Muslim Relations and
Religion," "Politics and Oil: The Volatile Mix in the Middle East," and
"Angle of Vision: Christians and the Middle East."
