    This book should reshape and redirect conversations around secularism, religion, law, religious freedom, environmentalism, and the public sphere. In addition, it ought to encourage difficult questions and conversations about scholars’ own secularity.”.

The early chapters of the book deal, quite naturally, with the competing claims for religious authority after the death of the Prophet Mohammad. According to those who would become Shi‘a, the Prophet designated his son-in-law ‘Ali as his successor as caliph (i.e., the supreme political and religious leader)—a claim the Sunni deny.
