Product Description

Review

“[Spencer] has engaged in concerted detective work of a scholarly nature. His book is no polemic. It is a serious quest for facts. . . . Well-written and moves right along.” —Washington Times


“Careful, detailed, well-reasoned. . . . [A] brave book.” —FrontPage Magazine


“This will send shockwaves through Islamic communities.” —The Blaze


In an impeccably researched book, Spencer shows that all our Arabic sources for the life of Muhammad are very late, tendentious, and unsupported by any archaeological or epigraphic evidence, while the non-Islamic sources are scant and ambiguous. Thanks to this book, skepticism regarding what we can know about Muhammad must now and forever be taken seriously.” —Ibn Warraq, editor of What the Koran Really Says


“A surprising and eye-opening new book . . . Quite a convincing job.” —PJ Media


“Robert Spencer has displayed brilliant scholarship and fierce courage in his previous books. In this one he perseveres and confronts with deep erudition the most topical problem of our century.” —Bat Ye’or, author of The Decline of Eastern Christianity under Islam


“A super detective service for the West . . . Spencer leaves few rocks unturned in his search for the truth about Islam and Muhammad.” —Capitalism Magazine

The ability to question a belief system is and should be universal.It's just that - a belief system. The existence of Muhammad is no different. Believe what you want but allow (and have the belief strong enough) to have your belief questioned and scrutinized. Those who won't allow that have a weak faith indeed.

This was a good book. It is difficult to accurately trace the history of any religion and Islam has proven to be extremely difficult because of the reluctance of Muslims to question any portion of the Qur'an or the prophet Muhammad. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the history or religion, especially the history of Islam. Even if you don't accept the author's version of Islamic history, he raises some valid questions and provides an interesting perspective.

This book is well documented and it has certainly contributed to by understanding Islam. It also generates debate over the sources of Muslim fundamentalism.
