This book synthesizes religious studies, cultural anthropology, and life-cycle psychology to explore the first patriarch of religious traditions. Focusing on the akeda (binding of Issac), the author mines the Hebrew text to examine this 'grossest violation of the human order, a father about to murder his son' in the context of Abraham's personal and spiritual development.
