Muhammad A Biography of the Prophet review ↠ 9 Ournalist is among the world's foremost commentators on religious history and culture Post 911 she has become a crucial advocate for mutual understanding between the world's major faiths Her books include Buddha A Biography The Battle for God and Islam A Short HistoryRespectful without being reverential knowledgeable without being pedantic and above all readable It succeeds because Armstrong brings Muhammad to life as a fully rounded human being The Economist. Written in the years following 911 this book has a clear goal of trying to convince Westerners that the origins of Islam include much that is appealing Others may fault her for bias but I think it is successful and honest at the same time Armstrong does not conceal those acts of the Prophet that are hardest for moderns to understand most notably in my view the execution of 700 men and the sale of their women and children into slavery because of an act of tribal perfidy she does however point out that the thrust of Muhammad s teaching was toward a new kind of harmony within Arabia and for Arabs with their neighbors She argues that Islam at its origins is an essentially pluralistic religion reuiring of its believers chiefly that they be monotheists and only secondarily adherence to the tenets of the Founder This emphasis on the worship of the One God thus accords a great deal of respect to others who believe similarly but do not necessarily follow the uran It is hard to know how accurate her view is Well hard that is to those of us who are relatively ignorant of Islam My own reaction to 911 was to read the uran and books about the religion including some works by the dean of Arab studies Bernard Lewis My only objection to Armstrong s treatment of the subject is her failure to account for the bloody missions seeking converts but I may now remember my Lewis now as well as I ought It is well to uote her at length from her closing because it is where she is headed the whole way through If we are to avoid catastrophe the Muslim and Western worlds must learn not merely to tolerate but to appreciate one another A good place to start is with the figure of Muhammad a complex man who resists facile ideologically driven categorization who sometimes did things that were difficult or impossible for us to accept but who had profound genius and founded a religion and cultural tradition that was not based on the sword but whose name Islam signified peace and reconciliation
