In this timely, provocative, and uplifting journey, the bestselling author of Walking the Bible searches for the man at the heart of the world's three monotheistic religions -- and today's deadliest conflicts.

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

Bruce Feiler set out on a personal quest to better understand our common patriarch. Traveling in war zones, climbing through caves and ancient shrines, and sitting down with the world's leading religious minds, Feiler uncovers fascinating, little-known details 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 and inspiring, it offers a rare vision of hope that will redefine what we think about our neighbors, our future, and ourselves.

Feiler is always curious about religion and how it interfaces with our everyday lives. This book continues his spiritual search started in Walking the Bible. Very easy read that belies the complexity of the ideas mentioned. He is trying to understand how Abraham become so important to the three major religions and how the different views of Abraham can be reconciled. My only wish was that he delved a little more deeply into these ideas.

This book provides very good and comprehensive insight as to how a significant biblical figure such as Abraham has turned out to be such a polarzing figure among the major religions of the world.

In addition to that the book is also well written and in such a style that is very to easy to read.

A book definitely worth reading.
