Critical Lives: Muhammad

Critical Lives: Muhammad - Yahiya Emerick I was conflicted between giving this four or five stars. On the one hand, this prophetic biography is lucid and engaging. On the other, I could constantly sense an apologetic undertone that seemed to permeate throughout the book. This is somewhat understandable, especially considering that this was published not too long after 9/11.This criticism aside, whether you are completely ignorant of the life of the founder of the world's second largest religion, or are a devout Muslim looking to refresh your memory on the life of the Prophet, God's peace and blessings be upon him, then this book is for you.
