Join us for a conversation with Dr. Craig Considine to discuss his new book, "People of the Book: Prophet Muhammad's Encounters with Christians".
In this overview of Prophet Muhammad's (PBUH) life and legacy, prominent scholar Dr. Craig Considine provides a sociological analysis of the Prophet’s teachings and example. He shows how the Prophet embraced religious pluralism, envisioned a civic nation, stood for anti-racism, advocated for seeking knowledge, initiated women's rights, and followed the Golden Rule. Considine sheds light on the side of the Prophet that is often forgotten in mainstream depictions and media narratives.
Dr. Considine is an author and professor of sociology at Rice University in Houston, TX.
