Deepak's newest book – Muhammad: A Story of the Last Prophet – is a riveting novel, that captures the spellbinding life story of the great and often misunderstood prophet. Rooted in historical detail, Muhammad brings the prophet to life through the eyes of those around him ― including his first wife, Khadijah, and his daughter Fatima. A Christian hermit mystic foretells a special destiny, a pugnacious Bedouin wet nurse raises him in the desert, and a religious rebel in Mecca secretly takes the young orphan under his spiritual wing.
Each voice, each chapter brings Muhammad and the creation of Islam into a new light. The angel Gabriel demands Muhammad to recite, the first convert risks his life to protect his newfound faith, and Muhammad's life is not a myth but an incredible true and surprisingly unknown story of a man and a moment that sparked a worldwide transformation.
Muhammad is the third of Deepak bestselling “teaching novels” about the world’s great spiritual leaders. (The first was Buddha, followed by Jesus). For two weeks, starting September 7, you can get a free download a special e-book BUDDHA wherever ebooks are sold, including Amazon, etc. This free edition contains a sneak preview of the forthcoming book Muhammad.

“Compellingly told, this is not only good storytelling, it also helps readers, especially non-Muslims, better understand the complexities and contradictions surrounding Islam.” ~Booklist
“Chopra takes us into the past through the Prophet Muhammad’s journey and brings wisdom and perspective to an often misunderstood figure. His compassionate and clear depiction is a courageous undertaking and a valuable effort against the enemy of ignorance. An important and timely book, indeed.” ~Greg Mortenson, New York Times bestselling author of Three Cups of Tea and Stones into Schools
“It’s worth discovering Muhammad through Deepak Chopra.” ~Ayaan Hirsi Ali, bestselling author of Infidel and Nomad
“We know more about Muhammad than any other ancient prophet, but we understand him the least. Until now. As a scholar and storyteller extraordinaire, Deepak Chopra portrays a morally courageous yet highly human messenger of God. Chopra shows that neither revering nor reviling Muhammad will unlock the meaning he embodied. So what will? Chopra’s answer is bound to challenge Muslims and non-Muslims alike.” ~Irshad Manji, director of the Moral Courage Project, New York University
