Commercial Bank of God? Islamic Banking and Law & Religion in Kenya introduces Islamic banking generally, a practice growing by leaps and bounds in East Africa. Besides explaining the nuances of Sharia compliant transactions, the book lays out the legal, social and religious context and framework that the (arguably) novel practice must navigate in order to flourish in the region. It explores the question of church (religion) and state relationship, in particular the place of Islamic law in Kenya. This is a good read for the law and business student and teacher, practitioner, banker, business person, and law and policy maker.
