Lead: Daily headlines confirm an ongoing conflict between Islam and Judaism, less noted is the centuries old struggle between Islam and the other part of the so-called Sons of Abraham, Christianity.

                Intro.: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

                Content: At the center of tension between the three great religions that see him as their founder is the enigmatic character of Abraham. His willingness to sacrifice comfort and security, reject the multiple gods of his ancestors, and answer the call of a single deity forms the foundation of the three great monotheistic religions, the people of the Book, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Despite their common lineage  by the two sons of Abraham, Isaac and Ishmael, and many common beliefs and practices, peace between these faiths often has been the exception rather than the rule.
