Product Description

Battered Love unmasks the violence against women incorporated in certain images and symbols used by some of the biblical prophets to convey God's relation to God's people. In her exciting work, Weems has provided insights that will influence womanists, feminists, and other scholars in religious studies to reflect upon the violence embedded in the sacred tests of the religions they explore.
