Abstract

Teaching Islam: Islamic Religious Education in Sweden, by Jenny Berglund, (Religious Diversity and Education in Europe, vol. 17), (Münster: Waxmann Verlag, 2010), 253 pp., ISBN 978-3-8309-2277-3, EUR,29.90 (paperback) (First paragraph) Teaching Islam is the seventeenth volume in a series on Religious Diversity and Education in Europe. The inside of the front cover states, "The publishing policy of the series is to focus on the importance of strengthening pluralist democracies through stimulating the development of active citizenship and fostering greater mutual understanding through intercultural education. It pays special attention to the educational challenges of religious diversity and conflicting value systems in schools and in society in general." This book appears at a time when religious education, in general, and Islamic education, specifically, has become one of the most significant challenges in the multi-religious world, especially in Europe. To my knowledge, this is the first study to present field research findings on Islamic religious education in Sweden and in Europe. Therefore, the book fills a niche in the field of religious studies.
