Bought a book on Amazon last week and it arrived in the mail today. "Understanding Fundamentalism: Christian, Islamic and Jewish Movements," by Richard Antoun, got my attention when an article about the death of the author appeared on the news. He was killed by a grad student from Saudi Arabia.

" 'An important part of what he did was to show Middle Eastern people as human beings with emotions just like our own,' said Donald Quataert, a professor of history at BU who had worked with Antoun since 1986."

And it cost him. So I bought his book, in defiance of the nut-job that killed him. He may not have very much positive to say about Christians, but critique is useful nonetheless. May he rest in peace.
