Publisher's Description

A woman called blessed for killing a Canaanite general; another called "Mother in Israel" for leading troops into war; several other mothers absent when their children need them; a judge, Deborah, with a proper name and a recognized place for public counselling; a single woman, Delilah, who seduces and conquers Samson. The book of Judges features an outstanding number of women, named and unnamed, in family roles and also active in society, mostly objects of violent dealings between men. This volume looks not only at women in their traditional roles (daughter, wife, mother) but also at how society at large deals with women (and with men) in war, in strife, and sometimes in peace.

Editorial Reviews

"Judges is not an easy book to understand or interpret, especially from a feminist perspective, despite having fascinating and literary masterful stories. However, Mercedes L. García Bachmann manages to hook her readers page by page. Her commentary is rigorous and tremendously current. The commentary offers the reader everything he or she needs to have a complete vision of Judges. As in front of an orchestra, García Bachmann directs the numerous voices that appear in the book and provides a harmonious reading of texts characterized by the disharmony of violence itself. This is a commentary that must be read to understand the book of Judges and at the same time, to situate the violence, especially against women, that continues to ravage our world."
Mercedes Navarro Puerto, Scripture scholar and feminist theologian, Madrid
