Muhammad: Prophet and Statesman
A short account of the life and achievements of one of the great figures of history, this volume also serves as an excellent introduction to one of the world's major religions. Written with objectivity, the book opens with a background chapter on the birth and early life of the Prophet in Mecca. Dr. Watt tells of Muhammad's struggle to make his way as an untrained orphan in the city's commercial world, and his call to prophethood as a result of visions.
