‘This is an excellent introduction to the life of Muhammad. Dr Brown is providing the reader with a rigorous study based on the classical Islamic tradition, yet well balanced between elements of faith and rational discussions, useful for Muslims and non Muslims alike. Very easy to read, profound and interesting to study.’ (Tariq Ramadan )
‘This is a masterful treatment…informed by first rate scholarship yet engaging, accessible, and distinctively different from previous books on Muhammad’ (John L. Esposito, Georgetown University, and author of ‘The Future of Islam‘. )
Jonathan A.C. Brown (born 1977) is an American Islamic scholar and currently Assistant Professor of Islamic Studies and Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University.
