Helping Non-Muslims Understand Muhammad

White Cloud Press

Scholar Steven Scholl has co-written a book that appears at first glance like one of those pocket guides to a tourist destination. 

It IS a pocket guide, but to one of the key figures in history. 

Scholl studies and writes about Islam and comparative religions, and his slender book is Muhammad: The Prophet of Islam

The book features words and pictures about the founder of Islam and the places connected to his life. 

The author visits our studio to talk about his towering--and frequently misunderstood--subject.
