"Abraham’s Daughter is not a gentle Midrash, nor is it an “ideal” expression of the way in which we can reclaim and re-imagine the divine. It does, however, speak to many of our experiences and to our culture’s “closeness” to abusive power. And I believe, like this daughter, we can use our closeness to powerfully counter and hopefully, creatively transform the kind of power that maintains abuse in our lives."
--Sara Frykenberg
