La figura de Mahoma (570-632), un humilde caravanero de La Meca que puso en pie una religión de alcance mundial, sigue suscitando inacabables controversias en Occidente. Karen Armstrong comienza su libro con una documentada y completa descripción del contexto histórico, político, moral y religioso en que se encontraban las tribus beduinas en la Arabia de finales del siglo VI de nuestra era. Es este ambiente, politeísta en lo religioso y desunido políticamente, Muhammad ibn Abdallah, Mahoma, vivió durante el mes de Ramadán de 610 una experiencia mística que cambió su vida y también el curso de la historia: el comienzo de las revelaciones que pronto fructificarían en el Corán (la Recitación). La autora narra los angustiosos comienzos de la nueva religión, el islam palabra que significa «sumisión» y «paz», y las disputas de orden teológico y político que no tardaron en desgarrar la vida de numerosas familias de ciudades como La Meca o Medina. Mahoma se perfila en estas páginas como un hombre complejo, apasionado, frágil, dotado para la política y fiel a lo que entendía como una misión personal y trascendente. Mahoma. Biografía del Profeta, que incluye un prólogo escrito por su autora tras los acontecimientos del 11-S, es un alegato contra los prejuicios hacia una religión que practican mil doscientos millones de personas en todo el mundo. / In a meticulous quest for the historical Muhammad, Armstrong first traces the West's long history of hostility toward Islam, which it has stigmatized as a ""religion of the sword."" This sympathetic, engrossing biography portrays Muhammad (ca. 570-632) as a passionate, complex, fallible human being--a charismatic leader possessed of political as well as spiritual gifts, and a prophet whose monotheistic vision intuitively answered the deepest longings of his people. Armstrong ( The Gospel According to Woman ) refutes the Western image of Muhammad as an impostor who used religion as a means to power, an attitude encapsulated in a psychotic dream episode in Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses. Denying that Islam preaches total intransigence, she finds in the Prophet's teachings a theology of peace and tolerance. The ""holy war"" urged by the Koran, in Armstrong's reading, alludes to each Muslim's duty to fight for a just, decent society. She draws significant parallels between the spiritual aspirations of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Reed Business Information
