I agree with the reviewer form Santa Ana (that the author could have stated his case more succintly), but this is a relaxing and informative listen - a good tri-faith perspective on Abraham (who, like the rest of the Bible can't be reduced to just the words about him in the Bible text); it's also a message of hope for interfaith relations in the longer term.
I couldn't finish the print version of one of Feilor's other books because I found it a rambling read, but I think I will download the audio of the same work for listening.
Abraham is relaxing because it's kept simple, a narrative of a personal journey of discovery, and not weighed down with footnotes or detail. For that kind of listen on related topics (also good but not so relaxing), try Karen Armstrong.

Feiler takes a secular view of the Abraham story and discusses the significance to the three religions. Trouble is his thesis could be easily stated in about half the time. Also the last 45 minutes or so is a preview of his "Walking through the Bible". Nevertheless if you are interested in the topic and have nothing better to listen to this one is OK.
