Bound by the Bible: Jews, Christians and the Sacrifice of Isaacby Edward Kessler
Pub. Date: 08/15/2004
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
One of the most well-known stories in the Bible is the account of how Abraham's faith in God was demonstrated by a willingness to sacrifice his long-awaited son at God's command. This story has been a source of fascination for Jews and Christians over many centuries, and Edward Kessler offers an engrossing account of their interpretations. Explaining that neither the story nor its interpretations can be understood independently, this book makes a valuable contribution to biblical studies.
