Once there was an Egyptian slave named Hagar. When Abraham wants the son his barren wife Sarah cannot offer, he turns to Hagar, who gives him Ishmael. Then, miraculously, Sarah conceives. When their son, Isaac, is born, Abraham no longer needs Hagar and Ishmael. Filling in the gaps in the Bible story, James Shott shows the pain and joy Hagar's love for Abraham brings her. And he explores Hagar's faith in Abraham's God -- a faith that helped her endure with courage. Often forgotten, Hagar's story is rescued from obscurity in this gripping work by the author of Joseph and Leah.
