Moberly explains how to read the text of Genesis 12–50, introduces the patriarchal stories featured therein and then gives an in-depth interpretation of one of these, the story of Abraham in Genesis 22. The author then gives an exposition of the place, setting, context and characters of these patriarchal scriptures. Moberly finishes this insightful text by probing the discussions which are significant in the history of these biblical writings, and issuing an invitation to readers of the Old Testament. He suggests using ones imagination to embrace the OT scriptures not only as history, but also as literature.
