In AD 570 a shepherd boy was born in poverty in central Arabia, yet, during his lifetime, he established a new religion, a united Arabic and the new literary language of the Qur'an. This is a deeply symathetic biography of an extraordinary and humble man, written by someone driven by the desire to make Mohammad's story known to the west. Mohammad's lifestory is placed firmly within the context of 6th-century Arabia and accounts of peasant life, battles and great journeys are complemented by discussions of Mohammad's spiritual journey and the religious principles that guided his life.
