Synopsis and Purchase Information
Faith Without Fear, 2007
Muslim author and activist Irshad Manji takes a journey to reconcile her faith in Allah with her love of freedom. Along the way, she reveals the personal risks, both emotional and physical, that come with such an urgent mission. Trekking through the Arabian peninsula, Manji speaks with Osama bin Laden’s former bodyguard, who explains why he’s willing to turn his young son into a martyr. She also engages a California convert to Islam who now lives in Yemen and says that by covering her body and face, she’s exercising American-style freedom of religion. Throughout her journey, Manji challenges herself to change.
