Lesley Hazleton: The Extraordinary Life of Muhammad

Yes, Muhammad was the prophet of a major world religion, but in her book The First Muslim, Seattle author Lesley Hazleton reminds us that he was also a man with a story. Drawing on sources from religion, history, politics and psychology, Hazleton’s portrayal of Muhammad is both human and complex. Her Town Hall talk, “The Extraordinary Life of Muhammad,” sketches his rise from anonymity to renown as he navigates between the conflicting ideals of violence and nonviolence.
