Journey to the End of IslamBook - 2009
Born Irish Catholic in upstate New York, Knight converted to Islam as a teenager. He probes and prods the boundaries of his faith with unabashed emotion and honesty, even questioning, near the end of his journey, whether he really understands anything about Islam. Knight's travels culminate at Islam's spiritual center, the holy city of Mecca, where he performs the hajj required of every Muslim. During the rites of pilgrimage, he watches as all variations of Islam converge in one place, under the supervision of Saudi Arabia's religious police.
