Description
by Michael J. Caduto. Woodstock, Vermont: SkyLight Paths, 2006. 216 pages, 6x9, map & study guide. Ages 13 and up.

Provocative and moving, ABRAHAMíS BIND is a novel ó a broad, sweeping adventure based on the Book of Genesis, from Abraham to Joseph. Barren and despairing Sarah becomes pregnant ó learning that nothing is impossible. Jacob the trickster is, in turn, deceived into marrying the wrong wife ó learning that love wields a double-edged sword. Joseph is sold into slavery by his brothers, only to rise to wield the power of life and death over them. This epic tale introduces the Knife of the Covenant ó symbol of Godís commitment to humankind and reminder that we walk a thin edge along our journey of faith. Here is the crucible of our lives: the true test of our powers of strength and conviction in the face of adversity, our wrestling with the range of human emotion, from jealousy and rage to kindness, sacrifice, and generosity toward the ones we love.

Reviews:
ďA deft re-telling.Ö Stories I have known and treasured over many decades moved me, for the first time in my life, to tears. To read Abrahamís Bind is to submit oneís spiritual imagination to a whole other level of poignancy and power.Ē
