Karen Armstrong on NPR

One of the first books I picked up on Islam (asside from the Qur'an) was Karen Armstrong's A History of God - The 4,000-Year Quest of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Ms. Armstrong is a strong ally of muslims in the west, and has written a number of books that are excellent introductions to Islam for the non muslim, including Islam: A Short History, and Muhammad: A Biography of the Prophet.

This past October, she published a new book on the Prophet, Muhammad: A Prophet for our Times. You can read an excerpt from the book and listen to an interview with Ms. Armstrong at NPR.
