From the temple mount of Jerusalem, the sounds of the three great religions can be heard in the distance: the blowing of the shofar, the ringing of church bells, and the Muslim prayers amplified from the minarets. People today take for granted this dissonance of sounds. For many people of the world, these are the sounds that represent a bitter history of antagonism and conflicting worldviews. But if we look to Abraham, and if we look to the truest teachings of the founders who followed him—Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad—these three sounds could become a harmonious triad of peace for all the world to hear.
Abraham is a welcome contribution in this direction. Abraham is central to the biblical narrative and it is good to see Binz drawing our attention not only to the Abrahamic narratives, but also to Abraham in other parts of the Old and New Testaments. The focus of this book is rightly on the biblical text itself, and the commentary and questions push us back to the text to listen for God’s address. ” —Craig Bartholomew, coauthor, The Drama of Scripture “Lectio divina is the perfect practice for studying the life, struggles, and hopes of Abraham and his dynamic significance for the faith and outreach of each one of us!
