The lecture on a whole isn't bad, but rather, lacked focus, the lecturing style can also be improved upon somewhat, still, one can learn much about the core essence of Religious Historical scholarship by using this set of lectures as a starting point.

What was good about this book is that you gain some insight into the middle eastern societies that nurtured these great figures. The narration is also free flowing and fantastic!
Unfortunately as the narrator dashes between the two stories it can be hard to keep track of whats going on. The author himself confuses their names on more than one occasion!
The book tries to achieve a style of being biography (from the believer and secular view) as well as a critical history (to separate legend from fact), but doesn't do either job particularly well. I therefore found it a little wanting in both aspects. There are one or to facts I also disagreed with. I probably wouldn't recommend this book to anyone that wasn't already very familiar with the history of both men.
I much preferred his other work, ''Judaism, Christianity & Islam''.
