 "Ghobash encourages the reader to accept a modern, enlightened path that embraces diversity, not just within Islam but among all religions…It is this sort of wisdom that creates hope for a world in which people are smart enough to work together toward a common good rather than claw at one another while slowly sinking in quicksand." ―Kareem Abdul-Jabbar,  The New York Times Book Review

 "Ghobash encourages a search for nuance in a world consumed with a polarizing, partisan us-versus-them mentality. This is not another exhausting cri de coeur about why Muslims deserve sympathy. It’s something more personal and intimate than that: a collection of letters from a father trying to empower his son to challenge an aggressive Islamist movement while simultaneously navigating oversimplified narratives surrounding his religion." ― Slate
