Information
A Journey Into The Heart Of Belonging.

Jonathan Freedland looks on as his eight-day-old son is about to be circumcised and admitted into the 'Covenant of Abraham'. So begins a search for the meaning of his son's inheritance - and an epic journey into the nature of this, the world's oldest civilisation.

What has Freedland done by enlisting his son into the Jewish people? What gift - or burden - has he given him? Freedland digs deep into his own family's past, telling the story of three remarkable people, each of whom came up with radically different answers to a quintessentially modern dilemma: how to live as a minority in the modern world.

Rich in both human drama and reflection, 'Jacob's Gift' is the story of this quest, and a delightful meditation on belonging.
