In this book, the author takes a deeper look into the great matriarch Hagar’s life and its profound socio-spiritual content. He uses the word matrix, as in the previous work he used commune, to evoke a special meaning in the narrative: the womb of the mother Hagar. He develops realms of understanding and creative sharing among different Semitic religions. Hagar, the black wife of Abraham, who was originally gifted to the prophet by his first wife Sarah has a powerful subaltern perspective to look upon too. Such a deconstruction would potentially wound the foundations of hatred artificially created and maintained among the Semitic faiths.
