Product Detail

Product SKU: 0805211829


Author / Artist:


In this fascinating and important study, Tikva Frymer-Kensky -- biblical scholar, linguist, feminist -- takes up two of the most significant intellectual and religious issues of our day: the experiences of women in a patriarchal society and the relevance of the Bible to modern life. She examines the stories of Sarah, Rebecca, and Rachel:; of Dinah, Tamar, Deborah, Ruth, and Jezebel; of Biblical women young and old, married and single, named and anonymous. Ultimately, this book enables us to go beond scholarship and to consider what relevance these stories have for today’s women, whose lives are in many ways different from those of our biblical ancestors.
