Introducing the Women's Hebrew Bible

PDF EBook by Susanne Scholz

EBook Description

This book introduces readers to the diverse field of feminist studies on the Hebrew Bible. Introducing the Women's Hebrew Bible PDF EBook Not organized as a traditional introduction to the "Old Testament," the manuscript does not follow a biblical book- PDFby-book structure, but provides an introductory survey of the history and issues as they relate to feminist readings and readers of the Hebrew Bible. Accordingly, feminist scholars of the Bible, their career struggles, and biblical texts, characters, and themes stand in the forefront of this introduction. The volume is biased toward "Western" feminist scholarship because of the historical developments of feminist scholarship in general and biblical studies in particular. Yet, the chapters also include African, Asian, and Latin American perspectives on feminist studies of the Hebrew Bible. In short, the book offers an overview on the historical, social, and academic developments of reading the Hebrew Bible as the "Women's Hebrew Bible." Like this book?
