Vindicating the Vixens: Revisiting Sexualized, Vilified, and Marginalized Women of the Bible
Glahn, Sandra, editor

Grand Rapids: Kregel, 2017 pp. 304. $22.99


Description: Gain a greater understanding of gender in the Bible through the eyes of a diverse group of evangelical scholars who assert that Christians have missed the point of some scriptural stories by assuming the women in them were "bad girls." While many have written studies of the women in the Bible, this is a new kind of book--one in which an international team of male and female scholars look afresh at vilified and neglected women in the Bible. The result is a new glimpse into God's heart for anyone, male or female, who has limited social power.

Subjects: Methods, Ideological Critique, Feminist Approaches
