Publisher’s Description: 

An accessible and fresh biography boldly arguing that Muhammads entrepreneurial mindset helped unleash the modern world

A beautifully written, immaculately researched meditation on the impact of the Prophet Muhammad on the modern world. I loved this book! Reza Aslan, author of No God but God and Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth

A six-year-old cries in his mothers arms as she draws her last breaths to urge him: Muhammad, be a world-changer! The boy, suddenly orphaned in a tribal society that fears any change, must overcome enormous obstacles to unleash his own potential and inspire others to do the same.

Fusing details long known to Muslim scholars but inaccessible to popular audiences, Mohamad Jebara brings to life the gripping personal story of Islams founding prophet. From his dramatic birth to nearly being abducted into slavery to escaping assassination, Muhammad emerges as an unrelenting man on a mission. Surrounding the protagonist are dynamic women who nurture Muhammad; Jewish and Christian mentors who inspire him; and the enslaved individuals he helps liberate who propel his movement.

Jebara places Muhammads life in a broader historical context, vividly evoking the Meccan society he was born into and arguing that his innovative vision helped shape our modern world.
