With Molly Cate
Explore the breadth and heart of Islam -- from basic tenets to its extraordinary contributions to Western civilization. Examine Islam’s grounding in peace, passion for knowledge, history and geographical spread, some key clashes between Islamic and Western powers and the grief everyday Muslims feel at the hijacking of their religion by extremists. Is fear our best response to this world-spanning religion? We will hear and read many Muslim voices as we expand past the negative soundbites pervading our world today.
