Editorial Reviews

Abraham & Family: New Insights Into The Patriarchal Narratives is a compilation of groundbreaking essays from a roster of very impressive men and women who consider that the family stories of Genesis embody turmoil, tragedy, deception, violence, passion, desire, love, and reconciliation that are as meaningful and relevant today as they have been for the past two thousand years and more. Informative, thoughtprovoking, occasionally challenging and controversial, these essays deeply examine the stories of Abraham and his dysfunctional family who would become the patriarchs and matriarchs of Israel, whose stories would have a lasting impact on the history and development of western culture. Abraham & Family is highly recommended reading for Bible study groups, church and synagogue class curriculums, college and university courses, as well as personal, seminary, and community library collections.
