Product Description

The Wisdom Commentary series is the first scholarly collaboration to offer a detailed feminist interpretation of all the books of the Bible, providing the best of current feminist biblical scholarship available. The commentary addresses not only issues of gender (which are primary in this project) but also those of power, authority, ethnicity, racism, and classism, which all intersect. Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah are included in this volume.

Publisher's Description

From the Wisdom Commentary series .
This volume offers a womanist and feminist analysis of the books of Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah, attending to translation and textual issues, use of power and agency, and constructions of gender and its significance for the real and metaphorical women in the texts. The unit on Nahum takes an unflinching look at God’s role and rhetoric in the rape of Nineveh and considers implications for the women of Nineveh and Israel and for contemporary readers. Habakkuk is read employing a womanist stratagem, talking back to God. The section on Zephaniah explores the racialized history of interpreting "Cushi" in Zephaniah’s genealogy and the figures of Daughter Zion/Jerusalem. The commentary also assesses these texts as scriptures of synagogue and church, their use and utility. A Jewish feminist reading and womanist hermeneutic accompanies each biblical book.?

Editorial Reviews

"Dr. Gafney uses her wide-ranging exegetical skills to make these biblical texts come alive in a new way. Consequently, the questions addressed in these books resonate with our own questions today, making this work indispensable to those who study, teach, or proclaim a word of hope from these ancient texts."
