Abraham & Family: New Insights into the Patriarchal Narratives, edited by Hershel Shanks, paperback (very good condition)
Some of the greatest modern minds-including Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel and Pulitzer Prize winner Jack Miles-wrestle with the Biblical test in this unique look at the patriarchs and matriarchs of Israel. Turmoil and tragedy, deception and violence, passion and desire, love and reconciliation -- they are all found in the family stories from Genesis. But Abraham and his family persevered and survived to found a great nation. Fifteen biblical experts wrestle with these stories from Genesis, and each provides a different avenue to understanding the biblical text -- serious, controversial, humorous, scholarly or challenging, but always intriguing.
