Glory and Agony
Full Product Description
Extending back over two millennia, this study unearths retellings of biblical and classical narratives of sacrifice, both enacted and aborted, voluntary and violent, male and female--Isaac, Ishmael, Jephthah's daughter, Iphigenia, Jesus. "Glory and Agony" traces the birth of national sacrifice out of the ruins of religious martyrdom, exposing the sacred underside of Western secularism in Israel as elsewhere.
Glory and Agony by Yael S. Feldman was published by Stanford University Press in September 2010. The ISBN for Glory and Agony is 9780804759021.
