Cambridge Companion to Muhammad

Heftet / 2010 / Engelsk
As the Messenger of God, Muhammad stands at the heart of the Islamic religion, revered by Muslims throughout the world. The Cambridge Companion to Muhammad comprises a collection of essays by some of the most accomplished scholars in the field exploring the life and legacy of the Prophet. The book is divided into three sections, the first charting his biography and the milieu into which he was born, the revelation of the Qur'an, and his role within the early Muslim community. The second part assesses his legacy as a law-maker, philosopher, and politician and, finally, in the third part, chapters examine how Muhammad has been remembered across history in biography, prose, poetry, and, most recently, in film and fiction. Essays are written to engage and inform students, teachers, and readers coming to the subject for the first time. They will come away with a deeper appreciation of the breadth of the Islamic tradition, of the centrality of the role of the Prophet in that tradition, and, indeed, of what it means to be a Muslim today.

'... a genuine contribution to the vast field of study of Muhammad ... The chapter subjects are well-conceived and cover a broad and instructive terrain. The individual contributions represent the highest standards of research in the field ... This felicitous combination of thoughtful conceptualization of salient topics and their proficient execution renders this a highly teachable book.' Shahab Ahmed, Harvard University'Three things above all impressed me about this companion ... the clear explanation and digest of modern Muhammed scholarship made accessible to the ordinary reader and believer and student; the emphasis on ways in which the life and times, prophetic and political gifts of Muhammed impacted on past followers and continue to shape the devotional lives of Muslims today; and how widespread, influential and often conflicting are the representations of Muhammed on global cultural politics today.' Reference Reviews"Brockopp assembles here a rich collection of essays by leading Western scholars, mostly American, on the life and influence of Muhammad.... Recommended." - Choice
