Synopsis: Soon after Joseph Smith, Jr., founded the Mormon Church in 1830, newspaper editors called him the American Mahomet, Modern Mahomet, or Yankee Mahomet. In The American Muhammad Alvin Schmidt has undertaken the challenging but informative task of documenting, discussing, and analyzing over seventy parallels that exist between Smith and Muhammad. He cites valid arguments why parallels between noteworthy individuals in history need to be studied in order to understand why they engaged in similar acts that left major marks in history. This fascinating book provides many facts not commonly known about Joseph Smith and Muhammad and will help readers see and understand how the teachings of these two men contradict biblical Christianity.
Alvin J. Schmidt, MDiv, PhD, is professor of sociology emeritus at Illinois College, Jacksonville, IL, and a fellow of the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion. He is the author of numerous books, including the award-winning Fraternal Organizations (1980); The Menace of Multiculturalism (1997); and How Christianity Changed the World (2004).

Review: No one is in a better position to identify the parallels between Islam and Mormonism and their radical difference as compared with creedal Christianity.

John Warwick Montgomery, PhD, DTheol, LLD

Distinguished Research Professor of Philosophy and Christian Thought, Patrick Henry College
At a time when Christianity is under assault worldwide, thispainstakingly researched and superbly written account of seventy parallels between the founders of two thriving socio-political faiths, Islam and Mormonism, should be compulsory reading for all.

Uwe Siemon-Netto, PhD, DLitt

A must-read for everyone who wants to understand Joseph Smith and Muhammad.

[Schmidt s] conclusions are very thought-provoking, and are sure to spark considerable discussion among scholars and laymen alike. Serious researchers as well as curious readers will find many topics of interest among the dozens of parallels Dr. Schmidt has pointed out here.
