Best-selling author and renowned religious scholar Karen Armstrong presents a concise and articulate history of Islam, the world’s fastest-growing faith. Beginning with the Prophet Muhammad’s flight from Medina and concluding with an examination of modern Islamic practices and concerns, Armstrong delivers an unbiased overview. She contends that no religion is more feared and misunderstood by the Western world as Islam, and firmly challenges the notion that these two civilizations are on a collision course.
