About the Author

Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl is one of the most important and influential Islamic thinkers in the modern age.

As the most critical and powerful voice against puritanical and Wahhabi Islam today, he regularly appears on national and international television and radio, including CNN, NBC, PBS, NPR, and the Voice of America (broadcast throughout the Middle East).
