Description: This book recreates a singular moment in the history of monotheism: the construction of the first Islamic monument, the Dome over the Holy Rock- the rock where Abraham attempted to sacrifice Isaac; the rock on which Adam first stepped leaving Paradise; the rock that had once been the Temple Mount site of Solomon's temple, a temple which would be the model for the Dome itself. It is a tale narrated by Ishaq, son of Ka'b, a Jew who had become a close advisor to Umar, one of the early caliphs after Muhammed's death. It is Ka'b who accompanies Umar to Jerusalem after the Muslim conquest of Jerusalem, heretofore occupied by Christians.

In recreating this great encounter between Muslims, Christians, and Jews in Jerusalem, Makiya gives us a portrait of faith as it conquers the temporal and geographical expanse as well as the internal expanse of the human heart, the landscape of the desert and the holy city. Each faith appropriates not only the history of the same terrain, but the same stories for its own spiritual design as a means of illuminating the revelations of their particular truth and wisdom. At the heart of each faith has been a rock -- itself a representation of faith -- the most literal and real testimony and proof of what each believes.
