ABOUT THIS BOOK

An international collection of ecumenical, gender-sensitive interpretations


The latest volume in the Bible and Women series seeks to provide an ecumenical, gender-sensitive interpretation and reception history of the Writings and later wisdom traditions including Ben Sira and the Wisdom of Solomon. Articles trace the living conditions of women, examine the presentation of female figures in the Israelite wisdom tradition, discuss women and gender relations in single books, and explore narratives about great female protagonists, such as Ruth, Esther, and Susanna, who prove their wit and strength in situations of conflict.


Features:


  • Essays by scholars from five European countries, Israel, and the United States

  • An introduction and fourteen essays focused on women and gender relations

  • Coverage of power relations and ideologies within the texts and in current interpretations.
