A few years ago, my friend and senior leader in the work of religious pluralism, Akbar Ahmed, took on an unprecedented project. He traveled across the country – accompanied by five exceptional young people – to learn about Islam in America.
As one of the world’s most prominent researchers on Islam and the Muslim world, Akbar previously conducted an important work –Journey into Islam – where he and several young companions traveled to three major regions of the Muslim world to learn what Muslims think and how they view America.
His new project, Journey into America, is the companion to that.
