Karen Armstrong talked about her book Muhammad: A Prophet for Our Time, published by HarperCollins in the Eminent Lives series. She described Muhammad, the prophet and founder of Islam, as a respectful man who lived a decent life. She argued that while the Islamic religion is often represented as cruel, inherently violent and intolerant, Muhammad taught tolerance toward Jews and Christians to his followers. After her presentation she responded to audience members' questions.

This lecture titled “Islam: The Misunderstood Religion,” was part of the Mosaic Foundation Lecture Series on “Re-Discovering the Arab World.” close
