About the Book

This book explains the concept of Islamic da'wah, or missionary activity, as it has developed in contemporary Western contexts. Poston traces the transition from the early external-institutional missionary approach impracticable in modern Western society, to an internal-personal approach which aims at the conversion of individuals and seeks to influence society from the bottom upwards. Poston also combines the results of a questionnaire-survey with an analysis of published testimonies to identify significant traits that distinguish converts to Islam.
