From the back cover:

“Farhad Amirebrahimi, who comes from Iran and was once Shia himself, rises above his heritage. His vantage is unique and so is his courage. With dogged determination, the hallmark of an inquisitive mind, he probes his inherited faith, questions its basic assumptions, and for answers goes to the Qur’an—the ultimate criterion . . . concise and clear and grounded in stunning rationale. Farhad sifts the grain from the chaff.”
