“The book that started the Mohammad controversy is a beautiful piece of work. It is well-written and contains wonderful drawings by an unknown illustrator, who may rightfully be proud of his work. It is highly commendable that Bluitgen sets out to recount the story of Mohammad’s life for a broad audience including non-Muslims.”
Jakob Feldt, Ph.D, research fellow, Institute of History and Civilization, University of Southern Denmark
“Bluitgen deserves praise for providing a complex and nuanced picture of Mohammad similar to the ones found in the original Muslim sources. On the terms defined by the author this book is certainly a success.”
Thomas Hoffmann, Ph.D., specializing in the Koran, Carsten Niebuhr Institute, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
“Bluitgen’s account of Mohammad’s life is based on the earliest Muslim sources, and his compilation is certainly worth reading. It is a nice opportunity to acquire more knowledge about how the life of Mohammad is traditionally interpreted by Muslims.”
Jørgen Bæk Simonsen, professor, Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies, University of Copenhagen.
