  • Chilton offers a thought-provoking look at how the Abrahamic faiths have understood the binding of Isaac in Genesis 22. Examining militant Zionism, Islamist suicide bombings, and graphic depictions of Christs crucifixion, he makes an analysis of contemporary martyrdom vs. the ancient, unenlightened sacrifice of children in the name of religion.
