Book and Podcast Recommendation

I listened to this podcast today. In an interview with Leonard Lopate from NPR's WNYC, author Sadakat Kadri discusses his recent book, Heaven on Earth: A Journey Through Shari'a Law from the Deserts of Ancient Arabia to the Streets of the Modern Muslim World.

The podcast was fascinating with the author discussing what Shari'a law is and how he came to study the subject and write a book about it. If I wasn't living in KSA, I don't know if I would have been as interested, but definitely living in the Kingdom has sparked my interest.

I've already ordered the book on my Kindle. When I finish reading it, I'll be sure to share my review.
