Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Against great odds, they found love—only to endure years of disappointment.

God promised for Abraham and Sarah abundant, fertile land and descendants more plentiful than the stars. But they don’t trust God to carry out His plan in His time. They grow tire of waiting for God to fulfill His promises . . .

Fearing for their lives, Abraham lies to Pharaoh, which eventually gets them evicted from Egypt, along with Pharaoh’s daughter, Hagar. When the barren years linger on, Sarah hatches a plan of her own to become a mother—ignoring God and ultimately causing a family division that ripples through the generations.   

When the resulting miracle unfolds, the reader encounters the life-altering love of God.

I found The Long Journey very enlighting and most enjoyable. You forget that you've read this story in the Bible many times.It is as if you never read it before and you haven't, not like this. Many little things become so real. Hagar for instance has always seemed to be just a servant. The book makes her become a real person with a real life and one who loves her child. She would die for her child and almost did. Sarah was always the perfect one and now the realization begins that she was a very real person and not someone who only lives in the Bible.
This is must reading for anyone who is a Bible Scholar.
My husband also enjoyed this book very much and he is definately a Bible Scholar. It is very unusual for him to read and really like a book of fiction. He has been a Minister and Bible Researcher for over 65 years. He is 93 years old and i've never seen him enjoy a book so much other than The Bible. You will become lost inside the pages in an era of long ago. It is an excellent author that can take you to the places and the people that the book is written about.
I saved Abraham for last because he was brought to life inside the book. We always think Abraham had it so easy because he was chosen of GOD. We find out that he was subject to human errors, fear and all the other human feelings and shortcomings that we experience.
A wonderful book whether you love history or just want a good book to enjoy. It is great for either. Thank You, Sylvia Kolenda

It started slow but picked up as it went along. Recommend it for those who like historical novels.

I also recommend the bookseller No Garbage Books. I received the book in the time expected and it was a top quality print of the book. I recommend using this seller for your printed material.

Abraham & Sarah: The Long Journey brought the book of Genesis alive for me. I have read it many times before but reading it in novel form brings the characters to life. Especially the women. I love reading about the chores the women did daily to run their homes and take care of their families. In Sarah's case, they lived in tents most of the time.

The Bible doesn't cover the women as much in detail as the men of the Bible. I keep my Bible close while reading the book so I can check the facts with the scriptures and it was pretty accurate. The feelings Sarah must have had sharing her husband so she could have a child, thinking she was barren! Then as an elderly woman FINALLY having her child you can understand why she was so protective of Issac.

This book gave Hagar a personality and feelings, a history and a life. Now I look at her completely different.

I usually am not a novel reading person but since discovering Biblical fiction I have been reading many novels. This one was one of the best so far!

Reading this book made the Bible come alive for me. It is a 3-dimensional view of what life was like in the time of Abraham and Sarah. It took me right out of the present and into a very foreign culture. It is so important for Christians to go back to our Hebrew "roots" to understand our faith and fully appreciate the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Abraham and Sarah by Roberta Kells Dorr is quite a good book. Only two things I didn’t like or agree with. The first is in the beginning of the book when Abraham left Ur. In this book it said they left because of a war, but in the Bible they left because God told them to. Another part in this book I don’t agree with is how Sarah is so bitter, spoiled and hard to get along. I know she did have a few faults as we all do, but not to the extreme this book tries to make you believe.
I enjoyed the characters and also thought the author made Hagar really likable. Which I don’t believe that was how she was. It made an interesting read.
The countryside, cities and plains were described to utter perfection. Enjoyed that about this novel.
Abraham and Sarah did have a depth to it that I enjoy in books and it was entertaining. I recommend this book. Very good.

I was very excited to receive and read this book. And when I got it, I was even more excited because the new cover is gorgeous (this book is re-published from 1995), and I love Biblical fiction. However, I was sadly very disappointed upon reading it. I had read a review where someone said that the author took great liberties with this book, and I must agree. It is much more fiction, than Biblical. I also feel the story is a poor representation of Abraham and Sarah and many ways. To be honest, I had to set apart in my mind the fact that this book was about Abraham and Sarah (in other words, I chose to think of it as a work of fiction completely, not relating to Biblical accounts), because it taints the Biblical account for me. I do not believe Abraham or Sarah would have acted like the author presented in this book.
I think this book had good potential, but it wasn't executed well. I felt that quite a bit of the information presented was inaccurate and definitely not factual.
However, I am not completely opposed to trying more of the author's books in the future, as I have read one other of her books that I enjoyed.
And please keep in mind that even though this was not my favourite read, doesn't mean it won't be yours. I don't want to point others away from it just because I did not care for it. One man's least favourite, is another man's favourite :)

I received "Abraham and Sarah" free from Moody Publishers for the purpose of this review.
