Description

At a moment when the world is asking "Can the religions get along?" Abraham stands as the shared ancestor of Jews, Christians, and Muslims. He holds the key to our deepest fears -- and our possible reconciliation.

Bruce Feiler set out on a personal quest to better understand our common patriarch. Traveling in war zones, climbing though caves and ancient shrines, and sitting down with the world's leading religious minds, Feiler discovers the untold story of the man who defines faith for half the world.

Both immediate and timeless, Abraham is a powerful, universal story, the first ever interfaith portrait of the man God chose to be his partner. Thoughtful, perceptive, and inspiring in a way that has endeared Bruce Feiler to readers around the world, Abraham offers a rare vision of hope that will redefine what we think about our neighbors, our future, and ourselves.

Also includes an excerpt from the New York Times bestseller Walking the Bible .
