A though-provoking collection of essays on the position of Islam in Germany by one of its most prominent public intellectuals. Kermani’s writing is interesting, nuanced and authoritative – he is not only a practising Muslim but also a respected Islam Studies scholar. These essays serve as an excellent introduction to the topic is Islam in German, covering most of the widely debated topics, such as terrorism, integration, and questions around belonging and identity, debunking many myths along the way. The language can be quite difficult and there are specialist terms that may be off-putting to those with a lower language level.
