Scanning the media in the non-Islamic world, you may perceive the image of Islam as a religion living in the Dark Ages at war with itself and humanity. It is often portrayed as a brutal religion associated with extremism and terrorism. Acts like those of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and al-Qaedaknown for chopping non-Muslim and Muslim heads, conducting suicide bombings on civilians, and attacking and killing innocent people across the worldare highlighted as examples. Muslims may call Islam a religion of peace; however, the media describe it as a religion of war and atrocities, a religion that spreads by the sword. Reading the media, you would also think that Islam subjugates women, treats them as second-class citizens, ascribes them the status of a servant, forces them to wear hijab, mutilates their genitals, ascribes them little or no rightsbasically living in a chauvinistic mans world. You would also think that Islam religious practices are out of date, meaningless, and arduous practices that are difficult to follow in our current socioeconomic environment. Islamic sharia law is out of alignment with current society, representing practices of the seventh to the twelfth centuries and therefore has no place in todays world. If this is the image you have of Islam, including those who consider themselves as Muslims, then think again. You certainly dont know Islam. This book is for you.

The world is full of people who are very certain—in politics, in religion, in all manner of things. In addition, political, religious, and social organizations are marketing certainty as a cure all to all life’s problems. But is such certainty possible? Or even good? The Certainty of Uncertainty explores the question of certainty by looking at the reasons human beings crave certainty and the religious responses we frequently fashion to help meet that need. The book takes an in-depth view of religion, language, our senses, our science, and our world to explore the inescapable uncertainties they reveal. We find that the certainty we crave does not exist. As we reflect on the unavoidable uncertainties in our world, we come to understand that letting go of certainty is not only necessary, it’s beneficial. For, in embracing doubt and uncertainty, we find a more meaningful and courageous religious faith, a deeper encounter with mystery, and a way to build strong relationships across religious and philosophical lines. In The Certainty of Uncertainty, we see that embracing our belief systems with humility and uncertainty can be transformative for ourselves and for our world.
