Abraham the First Ecumenist

Abraham is often looked to as a common foundational ancestor of the three great faiths, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and as a potential bridge for relationship and understanding between the three.

With reference back to the Bible stories, Dr Meg Warner will explore the relevance of the Abraham tradition for today.
