(CLOSED) The Woman Who Named God (5 Winners)

I thought this would be perfect timing to tell you about another amazing book. I don't talk much about religion on my blog as it is something personal. I have mentioned that I have started going back to church and learning and growing with my new chapter in life. I was offered to read a new book that I thought would be a wonderful one to share and just the right timing to do so. The Woman Who Named God is an book that has a little of all put together for one. If you looking for a book with history and archaeology, stop looking here!

Charlotte Gordon book talks about Abraham's dilemma and the birth of three faiths. The three faiths being Jewish, Islamic Legend and Commentary. You'll be compelled to read more about Abraham and Sarah along with Hagar. The Woman Who Named God will draw you in with the myths, lust betrayal and the blessing that will touch you. Charlotte Gordon did a wonderful job writing this story "and provocative take on one of the Bible's most intriguing and troubling love stories."

Hachette Book Group description:
The saga of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar is the tale of origin for all three monotheistic faiths. Abraham must choose between two wives who have borne him two sons. One wife and son will share in his wealth and status, while the other two are exiled into the desert. Long a cornerstone of Western anxiety, the story chronicles a very famous and troubled family, and sheds light on the ongoing conflict between the Judeo-Christian and Islamic worlds.

How did this ancient story become one of the least understood and most frequently misinterpreted of our cultural myths? Gordon explores this legendary love triangle to give us a startling perspective on three biblical characters who--with their jealousies, passions, and doubts--actually behave like human beings.
