A BRA.flAM JOURNEY OF FAITH Imagine a world saturated with ignorance and hatred, a lonely, brutish place without any hope of redemption. Now, picture a man-Abram, the Bible calls him-who hears a command from God: Leave behind the life you know, and I will one day bless the entire world through you. How this will happen, and why, is a mystery to this man, but he sets out. In time God gives him a new name: Abraham. In time he will become the patri arch of three monotheistic faiths-Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. And history will be forever transformed by his story.
