Description from the publisher:
The Messenger of God: Muhammad is a unique work on the life of the Prophet. With a heart full of love for the Prophet, the most respected author analyzes every issue in the manner of a meticulous researcher and sheds light on different aspects of the prophet’s life. Those who read this book with their heart and mind cannot help but admire the Messenger, the pride of mankind, and become loyal followers of his path.
The author has written the work with deep love for the Messenger of God, a love which suffuses every line.Another point caught my attention as well: It is almost as if Gülen is having a conversation with a group of young people. From time to time, he stops to look into the events in detail, in order to present the reasons that lie behind these events, drawing our attention to facts that may have been overlooked. In this way, he elevates the book beyond mere biography, taking to the level of a guide for the contemporary reader.

One may wonder whether Mr. Gülen only introduces Islam in The Messenger of God: Muhammad. I believe, when a Christian reads the book thoroughly, he will also realize the true wisdom of Christ.
