Bruce Feiler has a warm, welcoming voice that adds a personal touch to the reading of his second book on biblical ideas. In this memoir, he visits ancient shrines, churches, and mosques; shares tea with rabbis, imams, and Greek Orthodox priests; and explores the Bible, the Koran, and commentaries of three faiths in order to understand the biblical character of Abraham and his importance to Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Feiler's enthusiasm is infectious, although the decision to squeeze all 240 pages of the book into a six-hour recording results in a hurried pace and haphazard pronunciation. S.E.S.
