Bookshelf | Muhammad: A Prophet for Our Time

About the book:

The Man Who Inspired the World’s Fastest-Growing Religion Muhammad (SAW) presents a fascinating portrait of the founder of a religion that continues to change the course of world history. Muhammad’s (SAW) story is more relevant than ever because it offers crucial insight into the true origins of 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.
