Summary: The phrase 'Abrahamic Religions' points to commonalities between Jews, Christians, and Muslims, but downplays critical differences between the three communities' systems of belief and practice. Commonalities involve being book centred, and having in their cherished writings - the two Bibles and the Qur'an - revelations attributed to one God, not many. Twenty-seven narratives are, though not strictly identical in form and content, sacred to the three religions.
