In Light Upon Light: In Search of a Beautiful God, Mickey Weems shares with all of us a deep and personal account of his spiritual journey. He explores Islamic theology, self-reflects on his own experiences, and searches for a greater purpose. Weems philosophically, yet simply, describes how he came to the light after years of struggling on the cusp of seemingly contradictory identities: Muslim, progressive, ex-Marine, and gay.

The book was published by MPV Publications, which is part of Muslims for Progressive Values,  this month’s Featured Charity.  Our Featured Reader, Yasmin Kadir, was the Project Editor.
