Abraham is the first of an exciting new four-part series titled Ghosts of the Shephelah. It will take you inside the stories that built our faith. On that journey, you will meet the people, experience the trials, hardships, and prejudice faced by a foreign people in a new land. You will laugh with the truly universal questions children will ask and cry with the hate that has ever tried to pit man against man.
In an effort to retain Israel's history for future generations, Moshe instructs Miryam to begin training Levite storytellers to commit to memory the life story of Abraham. The narrative weaves back and forth between the major events of both the Exodus and the travels of Abraham and Sarah. Using biblical facts, the author has made sense of the many issues the church continually fails to acknowledge. Some facts will surprise, others will astonish, while still others will enlighten the reader. Above all, the reader will gain an understanding of how God's neverending love for all creation has the ability to forgive, and how God's determination to continue to offer forgiveness is culminated in the gift of Christ Jesus, the son of God.
