America at a Crossroads: Faith Without Fear

In "Faith Without Fear," Muslim dissident Irshad Manji is on a journey to help restore humanity and reason to Islam. Inspired by the Quran, Irshad asks, “How has a religion of justice become mired in fear?” Trekking through Yemen, Europe and North America, she discovers that Islamic faith can be reconciled with individual freedom — if Muslims have the courage to change. Along the way, Irshad is changed by one of her fiercest Muslim critics. But the biggest epiphany of all comes from her pious mom . . . .
