The book of Genesis opens, and the generations of man just whir by. By the time the reading of Lech Lecha begins twenty generations have passed. And then the pace slows down as Torah begins to describe the life and work of our father Avraham. What made Avraham unique? How was he different from all those that had come before him? Why was G-d pleased with Avraham?
