Inheriting Abraham: The Legacy of the Patriarch in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam

Levenson, Jon D.

9780691163550 - Inheriting Abraham: The Legacy of the Patriarch in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam

Artikelomschrijving

Jews, Christians, and Muslims supposedly share a common religious heritage in the patriarch Abraham, and the idea that he should serve only as a source of unity among the three traditions has become widespread in both scholarly and popular circles. But in Inheriting Abraham, Jon Levenson reveals how the increasingly conventional notion of the three equally Abrahamic religions derives from a dangerous misunderstanding of key biblical and Quranic texts, fails to do full justice to any of the traditions, and is often biased against Judaism in subtle and pernicious ways.
