    "In different ways, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all trace their beginnings to the man Abraham. Though also pivotal in the story, his two wives - the founding mothers Hagar and Sarah - have throughout history received far less attention. But this book changes that. It focuses on Hagar, Sarah, and their children." "Moving from an examination of the traditions that have emerged from ancient and medieval sources to contemporary questions and appropriations of the Hagar and Sarah story, these outstanding scholars provide an insightful look into a story that is foundational to these three great world religions - and an important entree into interreligious discussion and understanding."--Jacket
    Dreaming black/writing white : the Hagar myth in American cultural history by Janet Gabler-Hover( Book )
    3 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 376 libraries worldwide
    "Hagar, the Old Testament Egyptian heroine who bore Abraham's son at the behest of Sarah, was traditionally regarded as an African. Yet the literature and paintings of the nineteenth century depicted Hagar as white." "Dreaming Black/Writing White examines how the Hagar story was representative of the ways in which African Americans shaped the cultural identity of nineteenth-century America even as whites continued to disavow their contributions. The perception of Hagar as black meant that she could represent a combination of sexual passion and artistic creativity that empowered women in the process of taking on male roles of economic authority in American society."--Jacket
