Anyone seeking to understand the roots of tension in the Middle East need look no further than the final half of this book, where Feiler interprets the meaning of Abraham as seen through the prism of each religion. Surprisingly, the book is as entertaining as it is thoughtful: Feiler is a masterful writer with a warm, humorous voice, a dazzling way with metaphors, and an underlying intelligence that comes through in every passage. Abraham deserves the highest of recommendations. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Not only was it an interesting book, but very easy to read.
Abraham is the great progenitor of the world's three interrelated but independent monotheistic faiths: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
Indeed, Fieler makes a little too much of the fact that there is no archaeological evidence that Abraham ever existed.
Thought provoking with new insights into the world of Genesis. Could help to clarify the bonds and tensions between the three religions of the "People of the Book".Published 1 day ago by Emily Nickerson
