In this controversial and ground-breaking book, Irshad Manji-jornalist, iconoclast, rebel, and self-proclaimed Muslim Refusenik-exposes the disturbing cornerstones of Islam as its is widely practised today: tribal insularity, repression of women, and an uncritical acceptance of the Quran. But The Trouble with Islam Today goes deeper, offering a practical vision of an Islamic reformation that empowers women, promotes respect for religious minorities, and fosters a competition of ideas. Manji’s vision revives ijtihad, Islam’s lost tradition of independent thinking. In that spirit, Irshad Manji travels throughout the world with her challenge for both Muslims and non-Muslims: Dare to ask questions-out loud.
Hot, hot with revolutionary questions, anger, and challenges.
-The Independent (UK)
Manji has in no way abandoned her Muslim identity, What exactly she is refusing to do is simple: she refuses to accept that Islam is a stagnant and unchanging structure.
-The Friday Times (Pakistan)
I cannot urge Irshad Manji more strongly to maintain her frank, open, and intelligent approach. This cause it, I believe, the most important new movement in several decades.

A loud, clear call for honesty and reform. Wry, blunt, and irreverent, but never bitter.
