The Latest from Carrboro Book Beat

Memories of Muhammad: Why the Prophet Matters by Dr. Omid Safi (broadcast 7-19-2010) This is a well written presentation of Muhammad before and after he became The Prophet, of the world he was born into and the world as it was altered by his presence.  Dr. Safi provides the reader with the means to achieve a deeper understanding of Islam and the almost third of the world who call themselves Muslim.  Excellent both as an introduction to Muhammad and those who revere him and as an expansion of what might already be known, the book helps build a foundation for having productive and insightful interaction across religious and cultural divides.  Find out more at
