Athalya Brenner presents fictionalized "autobiographies" of a dozen women and women groups in the Hebrew Bible, and also lets them share a conversation session. This allows her to include how these women have been interpreted - not only in the Bible itself, but also in Jewish and Christian traditions and by modern commentators. The result is a thoroughly engaging and insightful look at women, from a leading biblical interpreter who has a very creative edge to all her work.
Athalya Brenner is professor emerita of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and professor in biblical studies at the Department of Hebrew Culture Studies at Tel Aviv University, Israel. She holds an honorary PhD from the University of Bonn, Germany. She is general editor of the Feminist Companion to the Bible, co-editor of Genesis and Exodus and Deuteronomy in the Texts @ Contexts series (Fortress Press, 2008), and author of I Am: Biblical Women Tell Their Own Stories (Fortress Press, 2004).
