When Abram finally requests the hand of his beautiful half sister
Sarai, she asks one thing — that he promise never to take another wife as
long as she lives. Even Sarai’s father thinks the demand is restrictive
and agrees to the union only if she makes a promise in return — to give
Abram a son and heir. Certain she can easily do that, Sarai agrees.
But as the years stretch on and Sarai’s womb remains empty, she
becomes desperate to fulfill her end of the bargain, lest Abram decide
that he will not fulfill his. To what lengths will Sarai go in her quest
to bear a son? And how long will Abram’s patience last?
