Hadith: Muhammad's Legacy in the Medieval and Modern World based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Dr. Jonathan Brown demonstrates a great depth of knowledge as well as easy to follow reading style in this very informative book. He takes the reader (in my case a "lay-reader") from the early beginnings of the hadith tradition to the current (modern) debates around it. The book seems very objective, and the author injects his position by clearly specifying to be so throughout the book. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the general topic of the history of hadith in Islam.
