"[A] compelling and moving interpretation that ponders the significance, for Abraham and his descendants, of his journey from Ur to Canaan, fraught with uncertainty for a man - expatriate, aging, childless - hanging between a lost past and a still unmapped future." (Publishers Weekly)
If you're looking for a christian narrative you'll be disappointed. The author makes the point, all through the book, that belief in a god of salvation from sins is merely a cosmic theatre. A good narrative from ancient authors who are credited with bringing sumeric life and traditions to the hebrewic bible.
"One of the best books I have experienced"
The book was an experience. Most insightful and fills in many blanks regarding Abraham. So glad I found it.
