Details:  Jesus & Muhammad as Charismatic Leaders - A Muslim Perspective,
[A5+] Hardback - 168 pages,
by Ibrahim Gorener,
Published in Turkey.





Description :


Both Jesus, peace be upon him, and Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, had their differences in terms of their personalities, social, religious, geographical, economic conditions, and backgrounds yet each was called to a prophetic mission by the same Divine Being and their acts conformed to the ideal-type, charisma, and charismatic leader in the terminology of Weber.


Gorener not only expounds the prophetic leadership of both Jesus, peace be upon him, and Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, from a sociological point of view in reference to Weber's definitions of the terms ideal type and charismatic leadership, but also compares the prophetic roles of Jesus, peace be upon him, and Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and the impact of their charismatic leadership within their distinctive social settings. Further, this study should be considered as the first attempt to compare Jesus, peace be upon him, and Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, from a Weberian perspective.
