Today, the world's 1.6 billion Muslims can be divided into a minority of fundamentalists, a majority of observant "daily" Muslims and a few dissidents who risk their lives by questioning their own religion. But there is only one Islam and, as Ayaan Hirsi Ali argues, there is no denying that some of its key teachings-like the subordination of women and the duty to wage holy war-are incompatible with the values of a free society. For centuries it has seemed as if Islam is immune to change. But Hirsi Ali has come to believe that a "Reformation"-a revision of Islamic doctrine aimed at reconciling the religion with modernity-is now at hand, and may even have begun. The Arab Spring may now seem like a political failure. But its challenge to traditional authority revealed a new readiness-not least by Muslim women-to think freely and to speak out. Ayaan Hirsi Ali argues that ordinary Muslims throughout the world want change. Courageously challenging the fundamentalists, she identifies five key amendments to Islamic doctrine that must be made in order to set Muslims free from their 7th-century chains. Interweaving her own experiences, historical analogies and powerful examples from contemporary Islamic societies and cultures, Heretic is not a call to arms, but a passionate plea for peaceful change and a new era of toleration., Digital content provided by hoopla., Explores how Islam can be reconciled with modernity to end terrorism, sectarian warfare and the repression of women and minorities., First edition., HISTORY / Middle East / General., Heretic :why Islam needs a reformation now /Ayaan Hirsi Ali., Heretic :why Islam needs a reformation nowAyaan Hirsi Ali., Hirsi Ali, Ayaan,1969-, Hirsi Ali, Ayaan,1969-author., Includes bibliographical references (pages 251-272)., Islam, Islam and politics, Islam and secularism., Islamic countries, Islamic modernism., Islamic renewal., MWT11589081, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New York, NY :Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers,2015., NjBwBTengNjBwBTrdaNjBwBT, POLITICAL SCIENCE / World / Middle Eastern., RELIGION ISLAM, Read by the author., Religion / Islam / General., Unabridged., [United States]:Harper Collins Publishers,2015., bl2015006101, computerc, data file, digital, e-Audiobooks, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital.,, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text, unmediated, volume, x, 272 pages ;24 cm
