In the hundred years since The Women's Bible, giant strides have been made in feminist interpretation of the Bible. Now comes the first comprehensive overview of the whole field. The authors systematically recount those efforts to describe the story of women in both testaments, to uncover tendencies not supportive of women, and to describe biblical traditions that empower women. The book unfolds in three parts:
  • Historical, Hermeneutical, and Methodological Foundations
  • Toward a Feminist Reconstruction of the History of Israel
  • Toward a Feminist Reconstruction of Early Christianity
  • Publisher Fortress Press

"We wish that our book may set many women aflame with that eros [of feminist research] and, in one way or another, lure them into the texts of the Bible." --from the Preface
