The world's three largest faiths all find a common root in one man: Abraham. Breaking new ground, David Rosenberg portrays Abraham as a man whose whole life, and therefore his legacy, is informed by the Sumerian culture that produced him. "Abraham" is a brilliant literary excavation of the ancient cultures from which our modern world has grown.
