Muhammad by Deepak Chopra.. This novel is a charming and highly readable introduction to the prophet, and Chopra’s light touch as a storyteller sweeps you along. The Arab world in which Muhammad emerged is as vibrant as the life of the prophet himself in this skilled portrait.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Chopra, an iconic figure in American popular culture, proves with this biography of Muhammad that he is more than just a New Age talking head. Varying by chapter the narrative viewpoints and using actual characters from the life of Muhammad, such as Muhammad's first wife, Khadijah, and his daughter Fatima, Chopra tells the story of Muhammad's life in this "teaching novel."."

Publishers Weekly

"...the finest of his long shelf of books. ...Chopra returns in his own attractive voice with one of the more level, tough-love, discussions of Islamic religion available.."
