Description

Mustafa Akyol is a Turkish political commentator and author. He writes for The New York Times, Hurriyet Daily News and Al-Monitor. Akyol's Islam Without Extremes was published in July 2011 and calls for an interpretation of Islam that synthesizes liberal ideas and respect for the Islamic tradition; it was praised by the Financial Times as “a forthright and elegant Muslim defense of freedom.” In 2017, his The Islamic Jesus was published by St. Martins Press. The book has received praise from Publisher's Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, The National Catholic Reporter, and more. Akyol is a Senior Visiting Fellow at the Freedom Project at Wellesley College.
