Karen Armstrong

Overview

Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the world, yet the West knows little about the origin of the faith, the teachings of Prophet Muhammad, and the nature of the political expansions as well as the conflicts that followed after His death.

Karen Armstrong is a Catholic nun turned scholar of comparative religions. Armstrong has written numerous best-selling books, including The Battle for God, Jerusalem, The History of God, Muhammad: A Prophet for Our Time, and Through the Narrow Gate, a memoir of her seven years as a nun.

In Islam: A Short History, Armstrong uncovers the historical contexts in which the Holy Quran was revealed, the spiritual and political visions of Prophet Muhammad, and the condition of the faith after the Prophet's death.

"And say: 'We believe in that which has been bestowed from on high upon us, as well as that which has been bestowed upon you; for our God and your God is one and the same, and it is unto Him that we surrender ourselves."
