A spirtual autobiography, the authors personal journey, a quest to understand our common partriarch, Abraham. This book is read like a novel, very interesting and informative.
(From the inside cover...)
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 reconcilation....
Abraham offers a rare vision of hope that will redefine what we think about our neighbors, our future and ourselves.
