Marvin R. Wilson has devoted much of his life to bringing Jews and Christians into dialogue with one another. His seminal text, Our Father Abraham - perhaps more than any other book - has clearly shown a generation of Christians the Jewish roots of their faith.
Perspectives on Our Father Abraham is a collection of thoughtful articles honoring Marv Wilson on the occasion of his seventy-fifth birthday. Nineteen Jewish and Christian scholars - friends of his and experts in their own fields - here offer various studies related to the patriarch Abraham. Readers will profit from these engaging, even groundbreaking, studies of Abraham both in the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures and in other ancient and contemporary traditions.
More than simply a Festschrift, this book encompasses a uniquely broad range of traditions having to do with Abraham. It also succeeds in the task that Wilson has always encouraged - bringing Jews and Christians together in fruitful dialogue.
