Bernard Lamborelle is a secular humanist with an engineering degree from École de Technologie Supérieure. In 2003, a simple question triggered a lengthy and passionate investigation into the origin of the Abrahamic faith. He first published Quiproquo sur Dieu (ed. Editas) in2009, which received praises from a few, left many dubitative, and raised excellent questions that called for answers. This led him to sign up for a Master in Theology at Université de Montréal in 2011, where he studied biblical Hebrew, historico-critical methods and narrative analysis. Armed with this new academic background, he widened the scope of his analysis to develop a comprehensive evolutionary model on the origin of monotheism.
This non-fiction comic explores the possibility that Abraham existed and made an earthly covenant with a Mesopotamian ruler who sought to control the valley of Siddim, an important trade corridor between Egypt and Mesopotamia.
This historical essay takes readers back to the Bronze Age, some 3,500 years ago, at a time when men of power were viewed as living gods. Using sociology, anthropology and etymology, it asks pertinent questions and dissects the biblical Covenant to explore an innovative and thought provoking interpretation that exposes this story like never before.
