I've seen the free-minds page before. It looks excellent - I'm pretty shoddy with reading lately but it looks like it would be very helpful to me, thanks for posting.

Just want to say thanks for all the PDF'd books that have been popping out from nowhere in the last few weeks for sharing ;)

 :D
yeah, i second that..
Say: "Then bring forth a scripture from God that is better in guidance so I may follow it, if you are truthful."

But if they fail to respond to you, then know that they follow only their desires. And who is more astray than one who follows his desire, without guidance from God? God does not guide the wicked people.

(Qur'an, 28:49-50)

Yeah!! Bring me other scripture beside Qur'an that is better in guidance!! This verses is so cool..

Salam
the link to the summary article doesnt work for me (http://free-minds.org/rethink )

It says page not found:
The requested page "/rethink" could not be found.
if you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor

when trying to find old web pages, try www.archive.org

In this case, googling the book title will bring up summary pages. See this thread http://free-minds.org/forum/index.php?topic=16646.0
