Description:
In this reverent biography of the man who invented or discovered God, David Klinghoffer disentangles history from myth and uncovers the profound impact of Abraham's message on his time and on the development of the modern world.

The Discovery of God chronicles Abraham's life from his birth in Mesopotamia through his travels as preacher and missionary throughout the Middle East. Many of the primary sites of Abraham's life and career still exist, and Klinghoffer describes what they were like in ancient times and how they appear today. The tangible details of the polytheistic culture are re-created, showing how Abraham challenged the most basic beliefs of his contemporaries. he did not set out to establish the Jewish religion, but rather to spread the message of ethical monotheism as it was revealed to him a powerful message that deepened over time, as did his faith and relationship with God.

Klinghoffer argues that the Bible should be viewed as an esoteric text that can only be comprehended in light of the oral tradition from which it emanated. Combining rigorous scholarship and interpretive ingenuity, he draws on biblical commentary and the Jewish oral tradition as preserved by sages from the Talmudic scholars to Maimonides to explore and explain the miraculous origins of monotheism.
