In God`s Generals, retired U.S. Army officer and current professor Richard A. Gabriel analyzes Moses, Buddha and Muhammad as military leaders. Gabriel`s outlook is philosophically materialist, and it is from that limited empirical stance (i.e., that the spiritual and supernatural do not exist) that he filters the evidence through the "dark and clouded glass of time" to reach what he hopes are "reasonable conclusions" (p 126).
Book Review of Gods Generals - The Military Lives of Moses, the Buddha, and Muhammad by Richard A. Gabriel
Gods Generals - Despite a few typos, and several inconsistencies (quoting from the archaic King James Version of the Bible and from modern versions; using the traditional BC and the modern CE for dates), God’s Generals is an informative, well-written read.
