The Worlds of Abraham; Alfred J. Hoerth, PhD; November 1, 2007
Abraham is one of the greatest people in history. Three great faiths claim Abraham as their forefather. However, what was his life like? What environment did he experience? By looking beyond kings and battles to such aspects of life as housing, dress, price index, diet (including a recipe for pigeon pot pie), and more, Alfred Hoerth presents a picture of the world in which Abraham grew up and the great length of his step of faith in leaving that home.
Alfred Hoerth (PhD 1961, University of Chicago) is professor emeritus of archaeology at Wheaton College, outside of Chicago. He has excavated in the Sudan, Egypt, Joran, Israel, and Syria.
