Product Description

Product Description

Stories in the Books of Genesis and Exodus tell of fathers whose sons are ‘lost’ to them through ‘deaths’ of various kinds. One is murdered. Another is abandoned. A third is supplanted. A fourth is betrayed. A fifth is taken for sacrifice. A sixth is forgotten about. A seventh is secreted away. Only one of these is lost through physical death; the others ‘die’ symbolically. But in their different ways all these sons are lost to their fathers, some for a time, some forever. And all of them develop the theme with which the biblical narrative begins: God’s first son Adam who, by becoming ‘lost’ to his Creator, sets in train God’s long search for humanity . . . The book culminates with a chapter on Jesus: God's son lost and found.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of Holy Wisdom and Holy Insight. 25 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book invaluable. It gave me fresh insights into those early biblical stories which I've known for most of my life. Michael Sadgrove's profound scholarship is presented in clear language that is easily understood. It was recommended to me by another priest and she spoke about it with such enthusiasm that I ordered it on the same day. Its a wonderful book and has moved me considerably.
