9780060525095: Abraham: A Journey to the Heart of Three Faiths

Both immediate and timeless, Abraham tells the powerful story of one man's search for the shared ancestor of Judaism, Christianity, andIslam. Traveling through war zones, braving violence at religious sites, andseeking out faith leaders, Bruce Feiler uncovers the defining yet divisive role that Abraham plays for half the world's believers. Provocative anduplifting, Abraham offers a thoughtful and inspiring vision of unity that redefines what we think about our neighbors, our future, and ourselves.This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

Product Description:

In his new book, Bruce Feiler, the acclaimed author of Walking the Bible, travels to the Middle East to find the truth and the meaning behind the shadowy biblical figure of Abraham. He also explores how the three religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam have appropriated Abraham as part of their tradition - and how the old man of the Bible could once again become a unifying force for those bitterly divided faiths. - Who was Abraham? - Why is he of fundamental importance to Jews, Christians and Muslims? - Can the message of his story help reconcile the warring faiths?
