Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"this is an excellent volume, exploring a mulitude of different facets of the Abraham narrative [...]. All of the chapters are of a high standard and much of the exegetical work is excellent. The chapters by the three editors, in particular, are exceptional. For a single volume on the Abraham narratives, the Hagarites, and the nations, this work deserves to stand as the definitive work on the topic currently available.'

Mark Finney, Journal of Theological Studies Volume 63 Part 1, 2012

'wichtigen, sorgfältig edierten [...] Band, der die hohe Bedeutung rezeptionsgeschichtlicher Fragestellungen unterstreicht.'
