I'm waiting on a library copy of Salim Mansur's new book. It will be interesting to see if he can make a convincing case for the possibility of reforming Islam, i.e. showing that it can have a purpose that is compatible with free-thinking, free-speaking, free-associating Muslims in a modern civil society - and still be identifiably Islam, the religion that currently prides itself in prescribing a uniquely correct code of conduct for a "complete way of life".
