Muslims are not aggressive?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Koran Curious: a guide for infidels and believers (Paperback)
Werleman thinks Muhammad and the Koran were using the morals of the Beduoin tribes not good today.
For each sora there is a list of subtitles, mostly not showing what the soras actually say and sometimes quite wrong in meaning. This could calm negative views of Islam or encourage people to learn more, or both.
Nearly a quarter of the book is about the whole life of Muhammad. In it he is praised both for being a caring person early on and also for later being a warlord killing people who did not convert. Werleman goes into great detail about how Muhammad appeared, thought and spoke and his gestures and emotions. Maybe he got it from published biographies but this is all hearsay or conjecture because the first biography was not published until until 150 years or six generations after Muhammad's death and long before printing existed. More detailed biographies came even later.
