Sorry, but the person who wrote the review titled "Another Islam bashing perspective" is way off base! Complaining that this book is written by an outsider to Islam is unfair, and would preclude anyone writing about anything they are not specifically a part of, or member of. Furthermore, Feiler does NOT bash Islam, any more than be bashes Christianity or Judaism. He takes a very open and honest approach to Islam, which is clearly conveyed in the book. His interviews and conversations with leading Islamic figures are demonstrate curiosity, respect and the sincere desire to learn. Perhaps you need to read the book again!

For Understanding Abraham: You Can Do Better

Feiler's 'Abraham' is a good book about the father of three religions written for people who have never read the Book of Genesis. For the totally uninitiated, Feiler gives a summary of the biblical stories, but does not go much further than this. Instead of Feiler's 'Abraham,' I would recommend first that people read the biblical Genesis. This is a much more interesting and lively book than Feiler's. And second, if you want insight into the same material that Feiler is writing about, read Dennis Shulman's 'The Genius of Genesis.' Shulman's book has more depth and is as well written as Feiler's.

    a work that should be classified as fiction

    I warn anyone professing any beleif in either the Jewish or the Islamic or the Christain faith to not waste their time, energy or faith on the reading of this book. The writer makes suppositions about Abraham and his relationship with God that shows know understanding of any scripture, at least not Biblical, in fact it is so far fetched it should be labeled a work of fiction.
