Named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most important innovators of the century, Tariq Ramadan is a leading Muslim scholar, with a large following especially among young European and American Muslims. Now, in his first book written for a wide audience, he offers a marvelous biography of the Prophet Muhammad, one that highlights the spiritual and ethical teachings of one of the most influential figures in human history. Here is a fresh and perceptive look at Muhammad, capturing a life that was often eventful, gripping, and highly charged. Ramadan provides both an intimate portrait of a man who was shy, kind, but determined, as well as a dramatic chronicle of a leader who launched a great religion and inspired a vast empire. More important, Ramadan presents the main events of the Prophet´s life in a way that highlights his spiritual and ethical teachings. This aidopbook underscores the significance of the Prophet´s example for some of today´s most controversial issues, such as the treatment of the poor, the role of women, Islamic criminal punishments, war, racism, and relations with other religions. Selecting those facts and stories from which we can draw a profound and vivid spiritual picture, the author asks how can the Prophet´s life remain - or become again - an example, a model, and an inspiration? And how can Muslims move from formalism - a fixation on ritual - toward a committed spiritual and social presence? In this thoughtful and engaging biography, Ramadan offers Muslims a new understanding of Muhammad´s life and he introduces non-Muslims not just to the story of the Prophet, but to the spiritual and ethical riches of Islam. 1.

Legendary football coach and Super Bowl champion with the Denver Broncos, Wade Phillips, recalls his life in football and memories of his father, NFL head coach Bum Phillips, in a book perfect for a Father´s Day gift. In his memoir Son of Bum, decorated NFL coach Wade Phillips shows that the roots of his knowledge come from his father, Bum Phillips. A beloved character in NFL history, Bum taught Wade from the beginning that ´´coaching isn´t bitching´´, as well as how to have perspective on the game during tough times. These are lessons that apply both on the field and off, and Wade has passed this wisdom down to his son, Wes Phillips, an NFL coach himself. Known for his homespun, plain-talking ways, Wade is a groundbreaking coach who has long believed in using support and camaraderie - instead of punishment and anger - to inspire his players to be winners on and off the field. And though his defensive concepts are revolutionary, he would say they begin with common sense. Son of Bum is more than one man´s memoir - it´s a story of family and football and a father who inspired his son. Original cover art copyright Diversion Publishing Corp. 1. Language: English.
