As their family’s desires clash, they must discover how to navigate increasingly dangerous circumstances.
From forced marriage, to fleeing the wrath of an angry city-state, and deceiving the pharaoh of Egypt, will they honor the Almighty and find the inheritance God promised? Or will they choose their own path and forge on into ruin?
Find out in this first book on the lives of Abram, Sarai, and Lot, based on Genesis 11:26 – Genesis 13:1.
"Brennan's imagination never ceases to amazes me. Abram, like all his novels, is fully grounded in detailed research and Scripture. His characters leap to life on the page. Abram, Lot, Terah, and of course, the beautiful Sarai are well rounded, neither perfect nor boring, but rather engaging and believable. I can't wait for the rest of the story!" - Carole Towriss, Author of Sold Into Freedom

Brennan McPherson’s ABRAM, a historical novel, takes readers on a journey where they’ll meet the Jewish patriarch Abram, his wife Sarai, and nephew Lot. But this is not the same story you first heard in Sunday School. As a novelist, McPherson offers intriguing, yet plausible, answers to questions of motivation and backstory about which you may have wondered.
Vividly told in the points of view of Abram and Sarai, the book transported me to the ancient world of Sumer and the journey on which Abram and his family embark as they leave Ur. This was my favorite aspect of the novel – its story world and the journey. At first, I struggled with some of Abram’s actions and motivations regarding his marriage, but later as his past was revealed, I understood. We all are marked by the trials we have endured.
ABRAM easily stands alone, but McPherson has a sequel in the works for readers who love series. He has also written several other titles in ancient history, including EDEN, which I read and loved.
I highly recommend ABRAM for readers who enjoy historical fiction set in biblical times and those who are fans of Mesu Andrews, Connilyn Cossette, and Jill Eileen Smith.
Brennan does a good job developing the characters, all the while aligning with the Bible account. Once Abram and his group enter Egypt, the story really picks up. And now.... I have to wait for the next book to finish the story.
I recommend this book. It'll put flesh on people of the Old Testament.
