Sharing Abraham

Do Muslims and Christians truly share Abraham? Is Abraham a starting point for dialogue among monotheistic faith
communities? These questions have seldom been examined as thoroughly or as sensitively as they are here.

Bristow rigorously analyzes biblical and qur’anic Abraham narratives and builds on the tight connection between narrative and worldview to lay the foundation for a careful and illuminating theological comparison between two portraits of Abraham and
the two faith tradition in which they are embedded. In the course of
building his argument, Bristow introduces an original model for
analyzing the relationship of narrative to worldview and sheds important light on the function of Abraham for contemporary Turkish Muslims.
