Item Description...
Overview
"My eyes are fountains of tears. My feet sink in quicksand." In Pharaoh's harem Hagar had little status and few friends-other than Baufra, the gardener. Little she knew that her future was bound up with a wealthy merchant from a distant land, who worshiped a strange god that he could not see. When famine brought Abram to the Two-Lands, Pharaoh took his beautiful sister, Sarai, as his intended princess, and Hagar became her attendant. Ultimately, young Hagar chose to leave her opulent society and cast her lot with the sand-dwellers of Canaan, who worshiped El-Shaddai. Author Hester Thomsen re-creates the texture of life in Egypt under the twelfth dynasty: the social and political influences; the feasts, opinions, and customs; the religion in which Hagar was trained; and the temple services in which she took part. The dialogue incorporates actual phrases taken from the Egyptian writings of the period, evoking Hagar's emotions and re-creating the world in which she lived. Hagar's amazing story shows how small choices can change the course of history.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Hagar - An inspirational read!  Oct 16, 2005
This book draws heavily on Biblical and secular history along with the author's personal experience of 25 years in archaeological excavation and research. It helps the reader understand background to the mid-east conflict of today.

The role of Abraham and Hagar in the grand stream of salvation history becomes clearer with reading this book.

The reader will also better understand the daily life of the ancient nomadic culture.
