Summary
"A mere nineteen lines in the book of Genesis, [the story of Abraham and Isaac] rests at the heart of the history, literature, theology, and sacred rituals of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. For more than two millennia, people throughout the world have grappled with the troubling questions about sacrifice, authority, obedience, and faith to which the story gives rise. Writing from the vantage of 'a reader, a son, a Jew, a father, a skeptic, a historian, a lover of stories, and a writer,' Goodman gives us [a] ... narrative history that moves from its biblical origins to its place in the cultures and faiths of our time"--Dust jacket flap
Summary
A historical meditation on the compelling biblical story about God's command to Abraham to sacrifice his son evaluates its role in the sacred rituals of Judaism, Christianity and Islam while exploring various alternate interpretations of major events. By the Pulitzer Prize finalist author of Stories of Scottsboro
