    At a moment when the world is asking, "Can the religions get along?" one figure stands out as the shared ancestor of Jews, Christians, and Muslims. One man holds the key to our deepest fears and our possible reconciliation. Abraham.

    "well done"
    Overall

    So many historical writings tend to be quite dry. This, on the other hand, was really entertaining as well as informative.

    He looks at Abraham from the perspective of each of the big three religions, traveling to the region and interviewing scholars. So, the story is not just WHO Abraham is but WHAT he means to each of these religions.

    Well done.

    Story

    In 480 B.C., a huge Persian army, led by the inimitable King Xerxes, entered the mountain pass of Thermopylae to march on Greece, intending to conquer the land with little difficulty. But the Greeks, led by King Leonidas and a small army of Spartans, took the battle to the Persians at Thermopylae and halted their advance: almost. It is one of history's most acclaimed battles, one of civilization's greatest last stands.

    Euryleia says: "Requires full attention"
    "poorly named"
    Overall

    I tried being patient with the book because I am really interested in the story of Thermopylae. But, after painfully listening to this pompous author drone on and on about everything but, I surrendered and quit listening at about the mid point.
