About the book: Bob Edgar, general secretary, National Council of Churches, said of this work, "The Tent of Abraham, Hagar, and Sarah, open on all sides, a tent of welcome to the 'other,' is an image critical for our fractured time. The stories of our common ancestors, told in this book with such creative imagination, inspire all of us to build community across the walls that normally divide us. This book is an inspiration."

The Tent of Abraham: Stories of Hope and Peace for Jews, Christians, and Muslims (2006) by Rabbi Arthur Waskow, Joan Chittister, OSB, and Murshid Saadi Shakur Chisti tells the scriptural stories of Abraham and the conflict that rages between the peoples descended from his two sons, Jewish from Isaac and Islamic from Ishmael. The book begins with two tellings of Abraham's journey, one from the Jewish scriptures and midrash and one from the Quran. Toward the end of the book there is a combined account that acts as a guide for beginning to find common ground.

The heart of the book is where each of the authors takes turns writing interpretations of Abraham's journey from the perspective of their religion. These take the form of series of short, interelated essays both on scriptural studies and the current crisis among the Israelis and Palestinians. These essays can be very beautiful and insightful as well as educational offering new takes on Abraham's story in the Bible and the completely new-to-me Islamic telling of Abraham's story. Rabbi Waskow has an interesting take on Abraham being the most dangerous person in the lives of his two sons: one he banished into the desert the other he tried to sacrifice. Both would have died if not for divine intervention. Sr. Joan reflects on many conferences of Israeli and Palestine woman working to end the killing of all their children.

The appendices of the book include resources for "pitching your own tent" and working toward peace among the peoples of all three faiths as well as some related essays by other authors.

Favorite Passages

When either community mourns the death only of those on "its side" who have been killed by those on "the other side," the outcome is often more rage, more hatred, and more death. If we can share the grief for those dead on both "sides," we are more likely to see each other as human beings and move toward ending the violence. - p. 59-60, Rabbi Arthur Waskow
Now, thousands of years later, Israelis and Palestinians are locked in mortal battle over the precise measurement of whose land is whose. The painful attempt not to be cheated is, ironically, cheating both of them out of peace and fellowship and trust. And all the while, it was precisely Abraham's decision not to invoke his right as the elder to chose the land that would be his. It is a painful lesson lost. The even greater concern is that unless both peoples discover that less can be more, the more their rights they get - unlike Abraham, who was willing to trust the soul of the other - the poorer in spirit they will all be. - p. 97, Joan Chittister

A human being is capable of holding vastly different and paradoxical points of view at the same time. We seem to have so many different voices within us, and our motivations are often unconscious. So simply nodding in agreement is no guarantee that I will act the way I intend. ... So I find myself called not to more thoughts but bigger thoughts and feelings accompanied by real action, based on the experience of a greater reality we all share. - p. 132-33. Murshid Saadi Shakur Chisti ( )
