Vox interviews author of "The Atheist Muslim"
I don’t think I’ll get around to reading Ali Rivzi’s “The Atheist Muslim: A Journey from Religion to Reason” soon, but I wanted to link to the interview on Vox between the author and Sean Illing, :An atheist Muslim on what the Left and Right get wrong about Islam, link .
The author talks about identity exploration and commitment, in binary combinations that can lead to identity foreclosure, or identity drifting. Young men may find real identity in what they believe is the literal interpretation of scripture, as well as a sense of “belonging”.
The book (256 pages) is published by St. Martin’s Press.
