Abraham, the patriarch

Cover eBook "Abraham, the Patriarch"

Great figures of the Book series

Abraham, to whom God promised descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky, is the ‘father of the faithful’. Jews, Christians and Muslims all claim him as their father, each with its own views on the patriarch. But who was he really? How was he interpreted and what do we know about him? In search of a better understanding of the patriarch, The World of the Bible turns to the Book itself and to the latest archaeological studies.
