Beginning with Books "Memory of Abraham" (1983, Award Livre Inter) and "Khazar Wind" (2001), Marek Alter continued his work of the conductor memory. His trilogy "The Biblical heroine," the first volume of which is "The History of Sarah, Abraham's wife," he reinterprets biblical events, giving them a rightful place for women.
"Once I thought that the lack of women's views on the Bible was the source of all reservations, which cause so many problems and disputes. Then I decided to read the Bible through the figure of female heroines, and all at once changed. Historical events have their seats, improbability disappeared "(MA).
What is the history of this long life, a beautiful woman, who accompanied Abraham, the father of monotheism, on the roads of Mesopotamia, Egypt and Canaan? Loving wife of a man to whom God promised to give a great nation. Sarah went through all the trials of infertility: a sense of guilt, the total contempt and betrayal of her husband, his choice of someone else's child adoption and borrowing someone else's heart for motherhood ... Passionate and touching Sarah is one of the most modern heroines of the Bible.
