Examining the stories of women in Scripture---Rebecca, Miriam, Gomer, Ruth and Naomi, Lot's wife, Zipporah, and dozens more---The Fruit of Her Hands illustrates the strong feminine sense of being crucial to God's plan for the world and for history. The biblical woman is portrayed as a "helpmeet-opposite," or one who can courageously seek the greatest good for herself and others whatever the circumstances. She does not have to choose between self and relationship, unlike classical Greek and Western woman.
Empowering, illuminating, and fascinating, The Fruit of Her Hands makes a singular contribution to the fields of women's studies and feminist theology.
Matthew B. Schwartz teaches ancient history and literature in the Departments of History and Near East at Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan.
Kalman J. Kaplan is professor of psychology at Wayne State University and clinical professor of psychology at the University of Illinois College of Medicine.

"With commendable courage, Kalman Kaplan and Matthew Schwartz defy convention to proclaim the timeless truth of God's plan for men and women."
Rabbi Byron L. Sherwin
Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies
"This informative, provocative, insightful, and eminently readable book both depicts and celebrates the women of Hebrew Scripture. Their independence, interdependence, courage, integrity, wisdom, and commitment are presented as an expression of covenantal biblical values, as a source of emulation for us today as we seek models for personal identity and interpersonal relationships, and as a much-needed alternative to the undesirable models rooted in Greek mythology and to the demeaning portrayal of women in Western philosophy epitomized by Aristotle's definition of a woman as a castrated man. As this fine work demonstrates, the wisdom of the Bible continues to address the challenges of yesterday and today with moral relevance, powerful poignancy, and remarkable psychological insight."
