Synopsis

In Abraham: One God, Three Wives, Five Religions, author Frances Worthington explores 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 Bahai 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. The narrative follows the life of Abraham from his birth, through his marriages and the birth of his children, and his repeated exiles. It also provides great insight into the lives of the founders of the five Abrahamic Faiths--Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, the B�b, and Baha'u'llah--and illustrates how their lives mirror that of Abraham. The final chapters consider genetics and the spread of common DNA through diverse populations worldwide and the spiritual ancestry uniting us all. The combination of Worthington's exhaustive research and masterful narrative make this a fascinating and compelling read.
