The Abraham: A Journey Through Lent [9780281074891]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Introduces the life and significance of Abraham in a way that will enlighten both complete beginners and people who thought they knew all they needed to know about him Follows the biblical account of Abraham and his family in Genesis, while drawing out key points of reflection and action during Lent Written by a brilliant new biblical scholar with a gift for communicating the very latest scholarship in ways that make sense to the non-expert The Abraham Journey is a Lent book that takes the story of Abraham in Genesis as the basis for a series of six Lenten studies. There is a single chapter for each of the six weeks focusing on an extract from Genesis. Each chapter is followed by a set of questions arising from it, which could be used by groups or individuals, as well as suggested further reading. Each chapter begins and ends with discussion addressed to the reader and his or her own experience of moving through Lent. This discussion is related to the chosen passage from the Abraham narratives for that week, and will not assume any previous or background knowledge of biblical scholarship.In each chapter the reader is offered an interpretation of the chosen passage that is fresh and designed to resonate with their own personal experience. The book gently challenges some traditional ideas about Abraham and his presentation in the Bible.


AUTHOR: Meg Warner is Module Tutor in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies, King's College, London, having recently moved from Trinity College, University of Melbourne, where she held the post of Lecturer in Biblical Studies. She is in the final stages of revising her doctoral thesis on the Abraham narratives for publication as a monograph by Cambridge University Press.
