Hagar was an Egyptian slave girl in the tribe of Abraham. She belonged to Sarah, the top woman. It was Sarah’s task to produce a son and heir, but when she could not, she gave Hagar to her husband as a surrogate. Hagar became pregnant, and God promised that her child would be the ancestor of a great nation. She bore a son, Ishmael. –Inspired by Rachel Held Evans. What’s different about Inspired, though, is that Rachel explores different genres and writing styles. Some chapters open with a short story (my favorites were the stories told from Hagar’s perspective, and the story about the woman that met Jesus at the well). One opens with a poem; another, a screenplay. Rachel was ready to commit herself and her sons to an uncertain future inCanaan.

Just like Sarai/Sarah gave her handmaid, Hagar, to Abraham to have children on behalf of Sarai/Sarah, These handmaids were basically considered 'surrogates' if you will, for lack of a better word.
