♥ Book Title : The Rise of the Prophet Muhammad
☯ Full Synopsis : "They say you can judge a person by the friends he keeps, but the focus of this book comes, in part, from the enemies of the Prophet Muhammad. Viewed by some as one of the most influential figures in history, he continues to polarise people. This book is written for people of all faiths and none who are curious as to how an illiterate orphan born in 570 emerged from the desert sands of Arabia to become a great political, military and religious leader. His importance to today’s 1.8 billion Muslims cannot be underestimated especially since his name is part of the five-times-a-day call to prayer. Whenever it is spoken by them, it is usually followed by the phrase “may God’s blessings and peace be upon him.” The phenomenal growth of Islam saw the rise of an empire more than 10 times the size of lands conquered by Alexander the Great, five times the size of the Roman Empire, and seven times the size of America."Article| Yvonne Ridley| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Rise of the Prophet
☯ Full Synopsis : "The land of Habareet faces so much trouble, only a miracle could save them. And the country’s leaders and many of its people no longer tolerate miracles—or the One who sends them. But Adonai has not forgotten His ancient promises for revival and restoration. In a few corners of the land, the impossible begins to happen—through the most unlikely people. A young soldier displays the strength of Samson, and a tanker full of diesel refuses to run dry. Rain begins to fall, crops start to grow, and people of opposing races move toward reconciliation. But not without arousing fierce opposition. AWOL soldier Joel, his sister Naomi, and a handful of believers of the racially torn city of Samarium face stiff opposition—from the top forces of the military elite and a self-proclaimed “prophet” who plans to blow the city wide open. For them to survive, and the ancient prophecies to come true, will take a miracle. You’ll be glad you joined this faith-stretching adventure."Article| Rodney Coe| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Savonarola
☯ Full Synopsis : "Girolamo Savonarola, the fifteenth-century doom-saying friar, embraced the revolution of the Florentine republic and prophesied that it would become the center of a New Age of Christian renewal and world domination. This new biography, the culmination of many decades of study, presents an original interpretation of Savonarola's prophetic career and a highly nuanced assessment of his vision and motivations. Weinstein sorts out the multiple strands that connect Savonarola to his time and place, following him from his youthful rejection of a world he regarded as corrupt, to his engagement with that world to save it from itself, to his shattering confession—an admission that he had invented his prophesies and faked his visions. Was his confession sincere? A forgery circulated by his inquisitors? Or an attempt to escape bone-breaking torture? Weinstein offers a highly innovative analysis of the testimony to provide the first truly satisfying account of Savonarola and his fate as a failed prophet."Article| Donald Weinstein| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Rise of the Prophet
☯ Full Synopsis : "In the past, a meteor struck the planet with such devastation that it wiped out the dinosaurs. In the present another one strikes the planet with such ferocity that it nearly wipes out the human race. From the ashes of the terrible destruction comes man, ready to rediscover himself. Religion reemerges as it is reinvented. For one group of people, finding the ancient propaganda of a hateful man, their religion becomes a prejudicial driving force to commit genocide on a neighboring, peaceful people. One man, even more twisted than his religion, pushes the Aryans onto a destructive path that turns their talk and ideology into action and blood. As a new, yet timeless evil is born, so is man taken back to a simpler time of agriculture without the interference of contemporary technology. The Lakemen are happy to just work and exist, love and prosper. The third group of people sharing the adjacent lands is the Krossians. Little is known about them other than they are traders and are in touch with other people not inhabiting the valley. They are a secretive and mysterious group and they may be the only hope for the Lakemen as the imminent threat of the Aryans draws near. Josiah has a gift: He can see visions of what will be. While the future prophet is living amongst the Lakemen, his betrothed goes missing. Matters only worsen when Josiah’s people capture Hister, a strangely maniacal and hateful zealot, who wants to see the end of Josiah’s tribe. Can Josiah interpret his visions in time to save his people? Bear witness to the beginning of Josiah’s journey and learn the fate of his people. Rise of the Prophet: Another Final Solution combines past and present in a horrific look at what man is capable of, of what severe beliefs can construct, and of a dismal future that only a complete lack of respect for differences and individuality can produce. An ode to an underestimated and brilliant creative force and a remembrance of something tragically lost, Prophet epitomizes fanatical beliefs and follows an all-too-familiar look at what can happen when ignorance and hatred use religion as a tool for destruction."Article| Gawain Gnosta| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Mohammed and the Rise of Islam
☯ Full Synopsis : "Not a religious text designed to either celebrate or denigrate Islam, this classic biography looks at Mohammed as a towering figure of culture and politics, a man who achieved the extraordinary: uniting disparate Arab tribes into more cohesive whole. Author DAVID S. MARGOLIOUTH (1858-1940), a professor of Arabic at Oxford University, worked from primary Arabic texts and omitted "all anecdotes that are obviously or most probably fabulous," resulting in a clear-headed history of a highly contentious moment in time. It remains an important work for anyone wishing to understand the roots of one of the most intractable sociopolitical divides-between East and West, Muslim and Christian-still haunting the world today. __________________________ ALSO FROM COSIMO Margoliouth's The Early Development of Mohammedanism"Article| David Margoliouth| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Muhammad
☯ Full Synopsis : "In the midst of the dramatic seventh-century war between two empires, Muhammad was a spiritual seeker in search of community and sanctuary. Many observers stereotype Islam and its scripture as inherently extreme or violent-a narrative that has overshadowed the truth of its roots. In this masterfully told account, preeminent Middle East expert Juan Cole takes us back to Islam's-and the Prophet Muhammad's-origin story. Cole shows how Muhammad came of age in an era of unparalleled violence. The eastern Roman Empire and the Sasanian Empire of Iran fought savagely throughout the Near East and Asia Minor. Muhammad's profound distress at the carnage of his times led him to envision an alternative movement, one firmly grounded in peace. The religion Muhammad founded, Islam, spread widely during his lifetime, relying on soft power instead of military might, and sought armistices even when militarily attacked. Cole sheds light on this forgotten history, reminding us that in the Qur'an, the legacy of that spiritual message endures. A vibrant history that brings to life the fascinating and complex world of the Prophet, Muhammad is the story of how peace is the rule and not the exception for one of the world's most practiced religions."Article| Juan Cole| Statement ..."
