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.

I know this author is held out to be a scholar of religious studies. Unfortunately, this book is written in the style of a pre-teen reader telling what can charitably described as the most positive view possible of the creation of islam. The author mostly just retells the story of islam's formative years primarily by recasting the hadith and referring to other, less academic writers, to create what is mostly an apologia for islam. She sprinkles the narrative with a few quranic revelations and provides a spin that strains the actual text of the quran to, again, provide a rosey view of the message. A more curious reader will examine the quran and hadith and likely arrive at a much darker view of islamic doctrine and history. If anything, this book seriously destroys any academic credibility of its author.

An excellent book that represent the life of the prophet Muhammad in a very objective style.
