September 26 FOL Book Discussion on "No God But God"--UPDATE

We are going to hold the September 26 book discussion on No God But God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam in the Faculty Center, a building located near the UNCG Alumni House on College Avenue. While we normally hold book discussions in the Hodges Reading Room of Jackson Library, the ongoing renovation project necessitated the move. We plan to be back in Hodges in October.

Room is still available for this discussion, and we invite you to register online or call 336-256-8598 if you would like to attend.

No God But God by Reza Aslan provides a comprehensive and highly readable overview of the history of Islam. Dr. Omar Ali (African American Studies) has spoken widely on this topic, and he recently was interviewed on WFDD. To listen to the interview, click here. After the introduction, skip ahead to the 17 minute mark. Dr. Ali's segment lasts approximately 13 minutes.
