Product Description

Bruce Feiler embarks on another one-of-a-kind journey: a search for the man at the heart of three of the world's most influential religions -- and at the center of today's deadliest wars. Abraham, the New York Times bestseller, now features a new afterword by the author and a P.S. Section.

Here is one man's personal quest to better understand the patriarch of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, the man all three religions call "God's Friend." Abraham is the lynchpin of the Arab-Israeli Conflict. He is the focal point of the battle between the United States and Islamic terrorists. He is the father of twelve million Jews, one billion Muslims, and three billion Christians.

Feiler uncovers many little known details about Abraham, including his defining roles in the Jewish New Year, the Easter liturgy, and the Muslim Hajj. From his revolutionary call to leave the land of his family, to his pain at banishing his beloved first son Ishmael, to his dramatic decision to sacrifice his favored son Isaac, Abraham has defined what it means to be a person of faith.

Bruce Feiler is the bestselling author of Where God Was Born, Walking the Bible and Abraham, as well as four previous books of nonfiction. Feiler is a frequent contributor to NPR's "All Things Considered," a contributing editor for Gourmet, and has written for The New Yorker, the New York Times Magazine, the Washington Post, USA Today, Esquire, and Conde Nast Traveler.

"A winning mix of insight, passion, and historical research ... This book] provides a basis for fostering genuine communication." -- Christian Science Monitor
