In the Southern Judea region, 3,050 feet above sea level, lies a city; some know it as Hebron, others Al-Khalil. In this city there sits a cave with three names: the Tomb of the Patriarchs, Ma’arat Ha’Machpelah, and al-Haram al-Ibrahimi. The cave is said to house the remains of a man and his family. The name can be pronounced Abraham, Avraham, or Ibrahim, but the man is the same. The Cave of Reconciliation is a book with two sides. Read from one end, it tells the story of Abraham and his son Isaac, flip the book and it recounts the tale of Ibrahim and Ismail. Told and illustrated in a simple style, The Cave of Reconciliation re-imagines the origins of one of the most complex conflicts of our time. Supplementary material includes maps, family trees, and a glossary of names. Endorsed as tool for interfaith dialogue, The Cave of Reconciliation is recommended by Jewish, Christian, and Muslim clergy. At a time when world events point to an ever-deepening and dangerous rift between Judeo-Christian and Islamic societies, this book offers a reminder of our commonalities and examines the source of our differences. Intended to promote dialogue and provoke thoughtful questions, The Cave of Reconciliation binds together two stories for one world.
