Feminist Theory and the Bible: Interrogating the Sources
Fuchs, Esther

Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield, 2016 pp. 160. $80.00

Series Information
Feminist Studies and Sacred Texts Series


Description: Feminist Theory and the Bible: Interrogating the Sources conceptualizes, contextualizes and maps a new kind of burgeoning scholarship that has grown up in recent decades. This scholarship emerged in the margins of Feminist Studies and Biblical Studies and has yet to find a foothold in either one of these more established contexts. In this book, Esther Fuchs argues that in order to find an enduring, stable place in the academe, this scholarship requires a theoretical perspective. Biblical Studies as a whole has not yet been sufficiently theorized as an academic field, and currently consists of multiple disciplines relying for the most part on traditional scholarly discourses. In this regard, Feminist Biblical Studies is both a departure from and an important supplement to both Feminist Studies and Biblical Studies.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Literature, Methods, Ideological Critique, Feminist Approaches
