A groundbreaking examination of Abraham, one of the most beloved and significant religious figures in history. Author Frances Worthington researches the three wives/concubines (Sarah, Hagar, and Keturah) of Abraham, and traces their lineage to five different religions - Christianity, Judaism, Islam, the Babi Faith, and the Baha'i Faith. Examining the scripture and traditions of these five "Abrahamic" faiths, this complex story also draws heavily from a rich variety of historical sources that provide a fascinating backdrop.

A look at Abraham through the eyes of a Baha'i lens. This book is incredulous in how the author invokes thousand(s) year old texts as evidence yet when there are any conflicts or egregious moral considerations from these same texts then you should look at those as allegory. I a m continually astounded at the mental gymnastics that people use to keep their beliefs. I didn't follow through on most of the annotations however in reviewing them they are just circular. No real insight or scholarship here.
