Faith-based

Poems arranged for presentation in Readers' Theatre. Judith Tate O'Brien, an insightful playwright and theologian, has woven thirty-eight of her outstanding poems to create this retelling of the story of Sarah and Abraham. Through the perspective of this feisty, thoughtful woman, we follow the couple through the desert, famine, the birth of Isaac, the testing of Abraham's faith and finally, Sarah's death. Only through a woman's perspective can we fully understand this couple and the entirety of this biblical story. In the words of the author: "As long as God is presented solely in male images, men and women alike will suffer diminished understanding of God."
