Embattled Saints: My Year with the Sufis of Afghanistan by Kenneth P. Lizzio  was recently reviewed by Chris Beal on the Bookslut Blog. The very favorable review read, “Given the importance of Islam in the modern world, most Westerners know far too little about it. It is rare to find personal experience and cultural history combined in one volume. Embattled Saints gives us insight into a sect that many Westerners may not have realized was still around, and in so doing also offers a larger view of Islam.”
