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. 'Armstrong has a dazzling ability: she can take a long and complex subject and reduce it to its fundamentals, without over-simplifying' Sister Wendy Beckett, Sunday Times
Karen Armstrong spent seven years as a Roman Catholic nun, an experience she recollected in her best-selling autobiography, Through the Narrow Gate. She is the author of the world-wide 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.
