Product Description

Bringing together some of the leading luminaries in feminist, womanist, and multicultural critical biblical studies in this book, each woman describes her unique perspective and offers her reading of a particular biblical scene. This is an ideal text for courses on feminist and multicultural biblical interpretation and includes discussion questions for each chapter and a list of suggested readings.

"This book is a treasure of focused illustrations, from many cultural perspectives, of how women's consciousness and creativity is transforming biblical interpretation and thus human society."
-Carolyn Osiek, Brite Divinity School
