Peterson (Islamic studies and Arabic, Brigham Young U., Utah) begins with the regional situation of Arabia at the time of Muhammad’s birth–pushed out from between the powerful Byzantine and Sassanid empires–and the cultural situation among Arab speakers. Then he narrates the life, ministry, and eventual triumph of The Prophet. He ends with a chapter on Arabia under Muhammad, before the expansion of Islam into other regions began.
