Acts of Faith

The Story of an American Muslim, the Struggle for the Soul of a Generation

Author: Eboo Patel

Revised edition of the renowned interfaith activist’s story of growing up Muslim in America and coming to believe in religious pluralism

Acts of Faith is a remarkable account of Eboo Patel’s struggle to understand the traditions he belonged to—American, Indian, Muslim—as mutually enriching rather than mutually exclusive. Patel’s story is a hopeful and moving testament to the power and passion of young people—and of the world-changing potential of an interfaith youth movement.
