After Abraham's Compass and Abraham in the Storm, in this third volume Father Matarazzo tackles another stage in the life of Abraham who, at the very moment when his community should be experiencing a period of prosperity (the return to the Promised Land after the dramatic experience in Egypt), is forced to face internal conflict within his life world, in particular the rivalry between him and Lot for the leadership of the group. The God of promise, the God whom Abraham is learning to know, even in this case does not abandon him; on the contrary, he gives him the necessary tools, strength and hope to face the challenges before him. Reflecting together with the author, who calls us to be the protagonists of this meditation through 102 tracks and 474 questions, we realise that Abraham's difficulties - juggling individual ambitions, tensions and hostility within the community and the management of the few resources at his disposal - are also our own. The meditations on this conflictual period in Abraham's life thus become a real path to revitalising our relational and social world. And they make us realise that Abraham's challenge, which seems so distant from us, is in fact increasingly our own challenge.
