The Emergence of Islam
Classical Tradtion in Contemporary PerspectiveeBook - 2012
"This brief survey text tells the story of Islam. Gabriel Said Reynolds organizes his study in three parts in order to tell of Muhammad's early life and rise to power, of the origins and development of the Qur'an, with a distinctive, if unique, juxtaposition between the Qur'an and biblical literature, and concluding with an overview of modern and fundamentalist narratives of Islam's origin, which reveals how those who represent Islam's future begin by shaping its past."-- Provided by publisher.
