About the three Abrahamic religions:

The Abrahamic religions, listed in chronological order, are Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. All three revere Abraham as one of their ancient patriarchs. Their holy books describe him as the first monotheist.

Christianity is professed by about 33% of the world’s population, Islam by about 21%, and Judaism about 0.2%. All of these religions are global in scope, and engage readily with world’s political structures.

Taken together, they inspire most of the humans on earth to perform acts of great generosity, kindness and love. Unfortunately, small extremist faith groups exist within each of the Abrahamic religions -- and in other religions as well. They motivate some of their followers to commit acts of extreme brutality, violence and terrorism.

The Abrahamic and other major religions of the world may be roughly divided into liberal, mainline, conservative and fundamentalist wings. In all cases that we have studied, the extremist faith groups are found as a small minority within the fundamentalist wings of religions.
