Was Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) Merciful?
The book is thoroughly conscious of the cultural other in the small village the world has become. Although the character of the Christian priest, Father Stephano, can be developed further, by giving it more guts and intellectual clout, and by making it less of the Glaucon stooge-ofthe-plot it presently is, the overall work could well provide the basis for a productive cultural dialogue. The larger space the book accords to refuting the charges of the sword and of demeaning women is no less apt and necessary.
