Athalya Brenner, herself a leading feminist critic of the Hebrew Bible, has gathered together in several volumes a unique anthology of feminist writing about biblical texts, both Old and New Testaments. In this collection will be found a rich resource for reclaiming the female heritage in these classic texts, for analysing the social structures evident in them, for exposing their sexual-textual politics, for re-evaluating female religiosity, and for rewriting biblical interpretation. Other volumes in this series focus on the books of Genesis, Ruth, The Song of Songs and Judges.
This volume is part of a series which provides a fundamental resource for feminist biblical scholarship, containing a comprehensive selection of essays, both reprinted and specially written for the series, by leading feminist scholars. The contributors to this volume are Lyn Bechtel, Mark Bredin, Athalya Brenner, Edna Brocke, Carole Fontaine, Lillian Klein, Amy-Jill Levine, Judith Lieu, Heather McKay, Adele Reinhartz, Jane Schaberg, Marla Selvidge, Leonore Siegele-Wenschkewitz, Beverly Stratton, Arie Troost, Pieter van der Horst, and Bea Wyler.
