The covenant that God made with the patriarch Abraham forms the basis of the three religions that today enjoy the largest followings in the world: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Despite the many common bonds among them, however, the Abrahamic religions have had an extremely complicated relationship—frequently defined by conflict—over the course of millennia of coexistence. F.E. Peters probes this fascinating dynamic by exploring the theological growth of these three linked, yet distinct, religious communities, showing how their interaction continues to have immense relevance to the current global state of affairs.
