This brief survey text tells the story of Islam. Gabriel Said Reynolds organizes his study in three parts in order to tell of Muhammads early life and rise to power, of the origins and development of the Quran, with a distinctive, if unique, juxtaposition between the Quran and biblical literature, and concluding with an overview of modern and fundamentalist narratives of Islams origin, which reveals how those who represent Islams future begin by shaping its past.
