Summary

Summary

At a moment when world peace has been shattered in the name of religion, one figure stands out as the shared ancestor of the Jews, Christians, and Muslims. One man holds the key to our deepest fears—and our possible reconciliation: Abraham. Thoughtful and inspiring, Abraham will redefine what we think about our neighbors, our future and ourselves.
