Not so fast

Matt Dirks has done a series on the complexity and ambiguity of Abraham's sacrifice of Isaac in Genesis 22. Here's a sample from Part 3:
Abraham’s unquestioning submission to God is a surprising and inspiring model for us. But any serious student of God’s word will finish reading Genesis 22 with more questions than answers. For some reason, I think that’s exactly how God wants it.
Part 1, Part 2, and this Postscript are also worth reading.
