Abraham - The Patriarch of Many Faiths is the biography of Abraham, an important figure in the Torah, Bible, and Qur'an. Jewish, Christian and Muslim believers regard him as the founding patriarch of the Israelites, Ishamelites and Edomite peoples. In what is thus called Abrahamic religious tradition, Abraham is the forefather of these people. According to the Torah, Abraham was brought by God from Mesopotamia (modern day Iraq) to the land of Canaan. There Abraham entered into a covenant in exchange for sole recognition of YHWH or God of Israel as supreme universal deity and authority, Abraham will be blessed with innumerable progeny. His life as narrated in the Book of Genesis (chapters 11-25) may reflect various traditions. His original name was Abram, "exalted father." Judaism, Christianity and Islam are sometimes referred to as the "Abrahamic religions," because of the progenitor role Abraham plays in their holy books. Abraham - The Patriarch of Many Faiths is highly recommended for those interested in the history and story of the father of many religions.
