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.

Review: Muhammad: A Prophet for Our Time

User Review  - Salma - Goodreads

Armstrong's style in writing the book makes it a very easy read. As a Muslim, it's interesting to see these stories from a foreign perspective. I only didn't give it 5 stars because there seems to be a few factual discrepancies, but nothing major. Read full review
