A Dysfunctional Legacy presents a retelling of the defining events that occur in the family of Abraham from the time subsequent to the eviction of Ishmael and Hagar to the time of Jacob's death. Offering a realistic, down-to earth picture of this chosen family rather than the sanctimonious treatment of them that is sometimes presented, the story begins with the end of Abraham and Sarah's marriage and his subsequent marriage to Keturah.
When he is instructed by God to sacrifice his son Isaac, he heads on the mission with the hope that God will inform him that a mistake has been made and that his son's life will be saved. But God's intervention does not come as expected, and Abraham's life takes a turn to the road less travelled.
Abraham's story as told in A Dysfunctional Legacy depicts the vaunted promises made to Abraham that have seemingly faded by the time of the death of his grandson, Jacob.
