Item description for Hagar, Sarah, And Their Children: Jewish, Christian, And Muslim Perspectives by Phyllis Trible & Letty M. Russell...

Overview
In this book, noted Jewish, Christian, and Muslim scholars focus on Abraham's wives, Hagar and Sarah, and their children, from Ishmael and Isaac to their many descendants through the centuries.

Publishers Description

In different ways, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all trace their beginnings to Abraham. His wives, Hagar and Sarah, though also pivotal in the story, have received far less attention. In this book, however, noted Jewish, Christian, and Muslim scholars focus on Hagar, Sarah, and their children, from Ishmael and Isaac to their many descendents through the centuries.

Moving from ancient and medieval sources to contemporary appropriations of the Sarah and Hagar story, the authors begin with an overview of the three religions--from their scriptural beginnings to their contemporary questions. They then explore how the story was developed after its canonization, in rabbinic interpretations, in the stories of Islam, and in the teachings of the early church fathers. They also present contemporary womanist and feminist perspectives. Timely, relevant, and provocative, this book provides an entree into interreligious discussion and understanding.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hagar, Sarah, And Their Children: Jewish, Christian, And Muslim Perspectives?

Great book  Jun 6, 2007
Trible provides some excellent insight into women's roles in the history of the three big religious traditions - Judaism, Christianity, and Islam; it's a good read, pretty quick, and opens your eyes to the huge role gender plays in the biblical narratives, even though gender tends to be downplayed by the Christian church and arguably even the biblical accounts themselves.
