Karen Armstrong is one of the best-known and most popular writers on religion today. She has authored 13 books, including the best seller “A History of God.” Armstrong’s achievements as an independent scholar focusing on the three great monotheistic religions, Christianity, Judaism and Islam, have earned her a reputation as a major contributor to interfaith understanding and respect.

Her books on Islam and the Prophet Mohammed have given many Westerners their first clear and unbiased insight into the history and teachings of this great tradition and its prophet. Armstrong has written a number of articles for The Guardian. Her latest book, The Great Transformation: The Beginning of Our Religious Traditions, was published in March 2006; her next book, a revision of her biography of Muhammad, is scheduled for the fall of 2006 from Atlas Books/ HarperCollins.
