Abraham and Isaac

Ed Cook has posted his own version of the near-sacrifice of Isaac from Genesis 22, which he describes as being "a midrash, written by a man who loves his children dearly and whose faith is minuscule compared to Abraham's. What would happen to such a man who was tested as Abraham was?" Be sure to check out the responses in the comments section.
