Description
This is the Turkish translation of my 2017 book Sharing Abraham? Narrative Worldview, Biblical and Qur’anic Interpretation, and Comparative Theology in Turkey. Cambridge, Mass: Doorlight Publications, 2017.

Is Abraham a starting point for dialogue among monotheistic faith communities? These questions have seldom been examined as thoroughly or as sensitively as they are here. Bristow rigorously analyzes biblical and qur'anic Abraham narratives and builds on the tight connection between narrative and worldview to lay the foundation for a careful and illuminating theological comparison between two portraits of Abraham and the two faith traditions in which they are embedded. In the course of building his argument, Bristow introduces an original model for analyzing the relationship of narrative to worldview and sheds important light on the function of Abraham for contemporary Turkish Muslims. Sharing Abraham is an essential resource for anyone interested in narrative and worldview studies, comparative theology, biblical and qur'anic hermeneutics, Abrahamic dialogue, or Islam in Turkey. The Turkish translation has been edited to accommodate sensitivities in Turkey today.
