Islam: The Untold Story
9 June 2017 | by a_baronSee all my reviews

The story of the origin of Islam is well known, or is it? Unlike Jesus, its founder The Prophet was a real person, there is credible evidence that he existed, and in spite of the revealed truth of its central message, there is no suggestion either that he was in any way more than human or possessed supernatural powers. Yet in recent years, both Christian apologists and especially mainstream historians focusing on the early years of Islam have come to some controversial and for Moslems disturbing conclusions.

Tom Holland is an historian who has published major works on the Romans, but when he turned his attention to the Arabs he concluded that much of what we thought we knew about Muhammad and the beginnings of Islam were not traceable to either the man or his contemporaries.

In this documentary he covers similar ground to his lectures which you can find on YouTube, but with the added attraction of jaunts in the desert and discussions with other scholars. You don't have to be any sort of academic to appreciate "Islam: The Untold Story", though you will probably appreciate it more if you don't attend mosque.
