This brief survey text tells the story of Islam. Gabriel Said Reynolds organizes his study in three parts, beginning with Muhammad's early life and rise to power, showing the origins and development of the Qur an with a distinctive, if unique, juxtaposition between the Qur'an and biblical literature, and concluding with an overview of modern and fundamentalist narratives of Islam's origin, which reveals how those who represent Islam's future begin by shaping its past.Reynolds's narrative of Islam's founding traces Muhammad's life in Mecca and Medina as well as the first four caliphs whose history illustrates the differences between Sunni and Shi ite views of Islam. His fascinating look at the structure and meaning of the Qur'an and its use of biblical language helps to illustrate and clarify its religious meaning. The book yields a rich understanding of diverse interpretations of Islam's emergence, suggesting that its emergence is itself ever-developing. The book provides a variety of helpful pedagogy, including chapter summaries, questions for review and discussion, photos, maps, suggested readings, glossary, and timeline.

Definitely a very good book: interesting, revisionist, full of information and well-written. I've read several books on Islam before, yet I learned many new things from this one.

The author- in a fair, respectful and scientific way - offers much needed critical outlook on the beginnings of Islam. Too many Western historians uncritically accept the official Islamic version, which is based only on apocryphs and legends invented many generations after the actual events. Gabriel Said Reynolds is evaluating this version and trying to find the historical truth. His arguments are convincing.

I purchased this book as required reading for a course I was taking on Islamic history. I found the book to be a very interesting read and it kept me engaged while I was reading it. The writer explains very well the development of the Islamic religion and the history of Muhammad and his family. Te book also covers the changes that happened over the years in the practices of Islam and the ways different groups separated because of there differing beliefs on Islam and who should lead it. I found the book to be a very enjoyable read and it taught me a lot about a subject I was not familiar with.

This is a very good University-Level intro textbook about the 'emergence' of Islam, {as the title states}. It is a very slight white-wash, but not too much. If you are a 'real' scholar of Islam, then you probably don't need this book. If you are below that level, then it is impossible to imagine that you won't learn quite a bit from reading it.
It is generally an easy read, and far better organized than most books I have on Islam. If you are interested in studying Islam, this book should be required reading, and is pretty affordable.

Reynolds book does a good job for new readers of Islam by explaining the traditional view of Islam emerging from Mecca and Medina in a polytheistic society. He then goes on in great scope and detail on how he believes scholars up until recently have just go e along and drank the kool-aid of the traditional story to the exclusion of letting the text of the Qur'an speak for itself. Scholars in the past have relied in the past on the Hadith which are often contradictory accounts of Muhammad's life. This half of the book can be complicated but is worth the time spent.

great book for those who want to know about Islam in an honest and a historical mindset; and the way to have a broader perspective of the root and cause, an expansion of this Arabic religion.

Very informational, very detailed. Not a quick read by any means.

I was curious about the History of Islam and stumbled on this book on Amazon. The author is a subject master expert and gives in-depth and objective historical details on the Emergence of Islam. Great read by all standards.
Dr. Reynolds is an expert in this field. The book is an easy read and very interesting. The reading would be a fun time, especially for those who are interested in knowing more about the emergence of Islam and the life of its Prophet. It shows a very balanced assessment/presentation of scholarly arguments and historical accounts.

Reynolds presents, in an excellent way, both the traditional view of Islam adopted by Muslims and the "new" or "revisionist" views. He shows due respect to the tradition without diluting/ignoring the critical assessment offered by recent scholarly research. The entire book is a masterpiece, yet four chapters in specific are must read: "The Quran and its Message," "Rethinking the Biography of the Prophet," "The Historical Context of the Quran," and "Contemporary Muslim Narratives of Islam Emergence."

I would highly recommend this book to everyone who wants to know about Islam or the Quran.
