The Man Who Inspired the World's Fastest-Growing Religion
Muhammad presents a fascinating portrait of the founder of a religion that continues to change the course of world history. Muhammad's story is more relevant than ever because it offers crucial insight into the true origins of an increasingly radicalized Islam. Countering those who dismiss Islam as fanatical and violent, Armstrong offers a clear, accessible, and balanced portrait of the central figure of one of the world's great religions.
Most people in the West know very little about the prophet Muhammad. This biography aims to give an accurate and profound understanding of Islam and the people who adhere to it. It also offers challenging comparisons with the two religions most closely related to it - Judaism and Christianity.
