Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An essential survey of the origins, tenets, and substance of Islam, this biographical classic encompasses the rich diversity of Mohammed’s influence, exploring not only his impact on religion and history but also his political and social relevance. Comprehensive in scope and even-handed in perspective, this is one of the finest volumes available in English about Islam. "A book of permanent value . . . should be studied by every generation of students in courses on religion."—The Moslem World.

Synopsis:

This classic work, long considered an essential analysis of the origins, tenets and substance of Islam, displays a deep understanding of the Prophet and his faith. Seeking to dispel Western tendencies to dismiss Islam and the character of Mohammed, the author reveals Mohammed's deep piety and demonstrates the power and spiritual energy of the religion of Allah. Beginning with an overview of Arabia at the time of Mohammed, Andrae then moves on to Mohammed's early life, his doctrines of revelation, his religious message, an evaluation of Mohammed's personality, and more. Comprehensive in scope, even-handed in perspective, cogent in analysis, this is one of the finest volumes available in English about Islam.
