Biblical Series XII: The Great Sacrifice: Abraham and Isaac

In this, the final lecture of the Summer 2017 12-part series The Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories, we encounter, first, Hagar’s banishment to the desert with Ishmael and then the demand made by God to Abraham for the sacrifice of Isaac.

In this lecture, I read an excerpt from Chapter 7 of my new book, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, now available for pre-order at Amazon.ca (http://amzn.to/2wkb7MY) and Amazon.com (http://amzn.to/2x1hfXF).

I am currently making arrangements to continue this series with a monthly lecture. That will start in September at a date and time yet to be announced.
