1.02 Monotheistic Religions In what ways is the Holy Land an important site for all three monotheistic faiths? The Holy land is important to members of the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic religion because they have lived on the Holy land for generations and have important religious sites located here.

For Jews, it contains many Jewish synagogues and this land was promised to them by Yahweh.

The Genesis and Exodus of Crake’s Children in Oryx and Crake A global census by the U.S. Center for World Mission indicates that, in the year 2000, 52.8 percent of the world’s population adhered to the Abrahamic religions, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam (Bush). While there have been numerous conflicts between these three religions throughout history, especially between Islam and Christianity, these three religions are all remarkably similar, particularly in their sacred texts. Both the second Sura of the Islamic Qur’an and the books of Bereshit and Shemot in the Jewish Tanakh contain stories that correspond very closely to the Biblical books of Genesis and Exodus. These accounts are also explored in Margaret Atwood’s novel Oryx and Crake, in the creation of Crake’s Children and their flight from Paradice Dome, the home that Crake designed for them. The parallels between the Biblical accounts and Atwood’s narrative are particularly strong concerning the character of the protagonist, Jimmy, who later becomes known to Crake’s Children as Snowman.
