Three key religious thinkers write about the story of Abraham as a way to deepen Muslim/Christian/Jewish understanding

The Tent of Abraham is the first book to tell the entire story of Abraham and to reenergize it as a basis for peace. Written by three leaders belonging to different faiths, the book explores in accessible language the mythic quality and the teachings of reconciliation that are embedded in the Torah, the Qur’an, and the Bible.

“If you are going to buy only one interfaith book, this has to be the one.”
Review By: David Crumm,   Detroit Free Press - January 1, 2007
“Want an antidote to tragic headlines about religious conflict in the Middle East? Try this remarkable new book. A celebration of religious diversity that is likely to leave readers more optimistic about the potential for peace.”

“The Palestinian/Israeli conflict has elicited many books exhorting political and religious peace in the Middle East, but none has appealed to individual minds and hearts quite like this one.” —LibraryJournal, starred review

“The stories of our common ancestors told in this book with such creative imagination inspire all of us to build community across the walls that normally divide us.” —Bob Edgar, general secretary, National Council of Churches

“This book will open your eyes to the possibilities for collaborative work between our traditions and is a must-read for those doing interfaith peacework.” —Tikkun
