If this example is any indication, Recorded Books is producing audio courses destined to be classics. Here they offer a terrifically engaging voice exuding warmth and wisdom. Islamic scholar F.E. Peters has developed a comparative approach over the years, bringing into his ken the other two people of the Book, the Jews and the Muslims. Obviously a deeply knowledgeable scholar, Peters shares his knowledge with lucidity, fairness, and scholarly dispassion. His delivery comes across not as a podium lecture, but rather as if he were chatting with the listener--except that the content is highly organized. D.R.W.
