Reviews

Every time I see a positive work on Hagar and Ishmael from an evangelical Christian pen, I rejoice and feel encouraged that the gracious story of God's redeeming love outside the line of Promise is being retold. Mike Kuhn's work Finding Hagar mixes in a beautiful way both serious scholarship and deep life applications. The corporate effort behind this work involving nice and vivid pictures drawn by his daughter points to the cordiality and passion with which this work was done. I wholeheartedly recommend this beautiful, serious and yet simple, work by Kuhn to every student of the Bible and especially to every Christian worker in the Arab World.Tony Maalouf, PhD

Visiting Professor,
Jordan Evangelical Theological Seminary, Amman, JordanFinding Hagar takes on itself the task of gently - and persuasively! - adjusting any misconceptions we might have on the place of Ishmael in God's larger scheme. By dovetailing the biblical narratives in Genesis with Jewish and Islamic traditions, Kuhn provides a panoramic timeline on which readers can travel up and down, revisiting familiar places and people and meeting new pieces of information. The encounters require that we rethink our presuppositions. And they challenge us to take our place in the continuing story of Hagar and her children.Havilah Dharamraj, PhD

South Asia Institute of Advanced Christian Studies, Bangalore, IndiaMike Kuhn's book on Hagar and Ishmael will open your eyes to what has been hidden in the shadows and has been overlooked. In this book, the spotlight is shed on Hagar as one of the best supporting actors in God's drama of redemptive history. Does Hagar speak to us today? In this book you will see how she speaks to us and to our burning issues. I wish every Christian would read this book as it brings grace to two irritant and misunderstood figures, Hagar and Ishmael. Once I started reading this book, I could not stop until I finished it.Nabeel T. Jabbour, ThD
Author, The Crescent through the Eyes of the CrossAs one who has had the Middle East as his assignment from the heart of God for over fifty years, I was captivated by this page-turning entrance into the Patriarch Abraham's country in the light of Mike Kuhn's artistic insights. This amazingly accomplished Arabist and scholar, with his wife, Stephanie, have absorbed a depth of understanding of the nuances of Middle East culture, with historical biblical insights, so that the reader is transported into Hagar's life . . . brought to life as you've never known it before! The bonus is that you'll want to read your Old Testament with fresh depth and enjoyment.Greg Livingstone
