Islam and the Future of Tolerance

One of the more important books that came out last year was a book collaboration between Sam Harris and Maajid Nawaz, titled “Islam and the Future of Tolerance: A Dialogue.”

Sam Harris, a famous atheist, and Maajid Nawaz, a former radical Islamist, joined forces in order to have a conversation about Islam without “devolving into bigotry or caricature.”

The video below presents a few clips from a Harvard forum, a panel discussion with the authors.

    Last year I mentioned here a book called “Islam and the Future of Tolerance: A Dialogue.”

    A documentary film based on that book is now in production, and the authors just launched a KickStarter crowdfunding campaign to finance it.

    I personally chipped in with a donation, because I find this topic extremely important and I applaud Sam Harris and Maajid Nawaz for engaging in their conversations.

    If you want to check the film’s KickStarter page, here is the link:
