Traditions about the Early Life of Abraham

John Gee Brian M. Hauglid

Traditions about the Early Life of Abraham represents the first in a series of books in the Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies (FARMS) collection at Brigham Young University. Here the authors have assembled and translated more than 100 ancient and medieval stories from their original Hebrew, Greek, Latin, Persian, Coptic, and Egyptian sources, all in an effort to piece together the early life of Abraham. This unprecedented compilation sheds new light on the Latter-day Saint scripture, Book of Abraham, as an authentic ancient text and will be a welcome resource for biblical and religious studies scholars.
