I was a bit surprised that I liked this set of lectures as much as I did. Professor Peters has an engaging speaking manner and he provides a concise, but interesting, discussion of the early beginnings of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths. The early prophets that are common to each of these faiths are described along with the subtle, and not so subtle, differences that produced the three paths. I rate this lecture to be a good read.

As a lengthy monologue presenting a very sound thesis, the Audiobook is a great success. Tying together the 3 monotheistic traditions of Judaism, Islam, and Christianity with the knot of their common patriarchal ancestry, the author tells a fascinating tale which also provides much valuable information about the 3 faith communities. As a "course," however (which it purports to be), the Audiobook is disappointing because of its unorganized, off-the-cuff presentation. I found it impossible, at the end, to find all the answers to the "Final Exam" questions without using outside sources.

As someone who has long been fascinated with these 3 faiths, this book really did its job in presenting these faiths side by side for comparison. The author is clearly excited by the subject and this makes it all the more interesting to listen to. This book is so informative as the author covers many topics. I definitely feel like I have an even better understanding of these religions as a result of this book. I was always reluctant to press the stop button and will probably listen to this a third or fourth time! I've rated this 4 stars and not 5 only because I disagree with one or two factual points the author discusses.

This has been the first audio book that I have ever listened to. It's helped me learn and lot about by comparing the three religions Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Very educational. Good to know the history of the 3 religions.
I liked the objective and unbiased historic account of all three faiths.
Very descriptive content, rich in detail.
I would recommend to any Muslims and those of other faiths who wish to better understand the similarities and differences of these Abrahamic religions.
Although not the authors motive- I found this eduction can lead to tolerance.
