One may wonder whether Mr. Gulen only introduces Islam in Muhammad : The Messenger of God. I believe, when a Christian reads the book thoroughly, he will also realize the true wisdom of Christ.
"The Prophet of Islam is one of the most misunderstood historical figures in the West. Mr. Fethullah Gulen's perspective on the Prophet and his life is among the significant in our times. Mr. Gulen does not only speak of historical events of the life of the Prophet, but also he addresses mystical dimensions as well as important information on all prophets and the concept of prophethood. Therefore, I strongly recommend Muhammad: The Messenger of God to everyone."
