Abraham on Trial: The Social Legacy of
Biblical Myth, by Carol Delaney, professor of anthropology at
Stanford University and biblical scholar. She talks about the trial of
Cristos Valenti, a man who heard the voice of god telling him to kill
his youngest and most beloved daughter in January of 1990, and Cristos
obeyed. Abraham was used as the model and the story was central to the
trial. The rest of the book discusses that model and its meaning within
Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. It is revealing and fascinating.

most Jewish babies undergoing the ritual of brit mila - was eight days
I remember being fascinated by the whole event. I don't remember
there was anything wrong with it.
years later, I went to work at the Jerusalem Post in Israel.
There, I was assigned a story on the practice of female ritual genital
surgery among the country's Bedouin tribes. I discovered a practice that
most Israelis abhorred, and considered primitive and barbaric. I was
pressed to disagree; though the circumcision performed on Bedouin women
was an incision quite minor in severity compared to the clitorectomies
other parts of the world...."
