Editor’s Note

“Full of wit & chutzpah...”

Full of grace, wit & chutzpah, this daring history is as much about the evolution of monotheism, Middle Eastern culture & biblical literary style as it is about its eponymous patriarch. A smart, challenging read.

From the Publisher

The world’s three largest faiths all find a common root in one man: Abraham. Breaking new ground, David Rosenberg portrays Abraham as a man whose whole life, and therefore his legacy, is informed by the Sumerian culture that produced him. Abraham is a brilliant literary excavation of the ancient cultures from which our modern world has grown.
