Publisher's Description

Nameless, Blameless, and Without Shame is a character study of the two obscure women before a king (2 Kings 6:24-33). It explores the violence encoded in the texts by the privileged powerful. The character study connects these cannibal mothers to portraits of other pairs of biblical mothers and their plight--the two mothers before Solomon, Sarah and Hagar, Rachel and Leah. This prompts us to search for counterstories in the biblical tradition and in our own lives opposing the violence embedded there. The text and the tradition of interpretation would urge us to disregard, scorn, or even indict these two women and all they represent. However, the character analysis emerging out of this literary assessment argues in favor of elevating these nameless mothers as blameless. Chapters are "Building Character," "A Story Within Stories," "Literary Criticism and the Tale of Two Cannibal Mothers," "A Postmodern Literary Study of Two Cannibal Mothers Before a King," "Stories Speak of Other Stories," and "Character, Counter Texts, and Conclusion."
