John Morrow, an associate professor of Spanish and French at Ivy Tech Community College Northeast, has published a book to be released Sept. 27. “The Covenants of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of the World,” published by Sophia Perennis and the Angelico Press, looks at the covenants Muhammad made with Christian communities. Morrow discovered these covenants in a variety of places, from obscure monasteries to out-of-print books.
“(The covenants) uniformly state that Muslims are not to attack peaceful Christian communities, rob them, stop churches from being repaired, tear down churches to build mosques, prevent their Christian wives from going to church and taking spiritual direction from Christian priests and elders, etc.,” Morrow says on the book’s website. “On the contrary, the Prophet commands Muslims to actively protect these communities ‘until the End of the World.’”
The book’s broader effort, Morrow says, is to promote peace among members of Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
The academic book is being marketed directly to university libraries and will be available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble’s website. More information on “The Covenants” can be found online at covenantsoftheprophet.com.
