Abraham in the Furnace

Abraham in the Furnace
A rebel in a Pagan World
Vered Tohar

The book analyses the theme ''Abraham in the Furnace'' from a historical and contextual perspective by means of more than ninety written Jewish story versions. The personal story of Abraham, as a rebellious individual, merges with the national story of the discovery of monotheism and the birth of a new nation. The story versions, dating from the 5th century C.E., create a Jewish myth whose traces are evident in contemporary Israeli literature. From the series Thema - Thematological Studies in the Literature of the Jewish People.
