A life of the prophet Muhammad by bestselling religious writer Karen Armstrong.
Most people in the West know very little about the prophet Muhammad. The acclaimed religious writer Karen Armstrong has written a biography which will give us a more accurate and profound understanding of Islam and the people who adhere to it so strongly. Muhammad also offers challenging comparisons with the two religions most closely related to it - Judaism and Christianity.
Karen Armstrong spent seven years as a Roman Catholic nun, an experience she recollected in her bestselling autobiography, THROUGH THE NARROW GATE. She is the author of the worldwide bestseller, A HISTORY OF GOD (which has now appeared in more than thirty languages), the acclaimed HISTORY OF JERUSALEM and, most recently, BUDDHA in the Weidenfeld & Nicolson Lives series. She is a teacher at the Leo Baeck College for the Study of Judaism and, in 1999, she received the Muslim Public Affairs Council Media Award.
