Watch and listen to these video and podcast interviews with Frances Worthington, author of Abraham: One God, Three Wives, Five Religions

Abraham: One God, Three Wives, Five Religions “brings a fresh and lively interfaith perspective to the four-thousand-year-old story of Abraham, Sarah, Hagar, Keturah and their eight children. Follow the adventure from the lush marshes of Mesopotamia to the cleverly designed beehive houses of Turkey to the dry hills of the Land of Canaan. Ponder the mystical fire into which Nimrod threw Abraham, the spiritual nature of the water discovered by Hagar in Arabia, and how Keturah was connected to Moses’ first wife.  Trace the line of Abraham down through the centuries, all the way to His current descendants.”

This book is available for purchase through the Baha’i Distribution Service

Frances Worthington is a graduate of Duke University who was an award-winning garden columnist/photographer before she began concentrating on writing about religion. She has been active in interfaith activities for several decades and served three terms as chair of the Interfaith Forum in Greenville, South Carolina.  Her passion for encouraging appreciative interfaith dialogue was the driving force behind this book, which draws from the sacred scriptures of five religions – Judaism, Christianity, Islam, the Babi Faith and the Baha’i Faith - to tell the fascinating story of Abraham, His wives, and His numerous offspring.

    Ms. Worthington, how about visiting San Francisco? The Baha’is here have started a book discussion group as of Feb. 2013. ABRAHAM: One God, Three Wives, Five Religions is our first selection.
