Studies in Bible and Feminist Criticism
Frymer-Kensky, Tikva

Philadelphia: Jewish Publication Society, 2006 pp. xxvi + 436. $40.00

Series Information
JPS Scholar of Distinction Series


Description: Each of the thirty essays here delves into a topic that gives us much food for thought: the Bible as interpreted through ancient Near-Eastern creation myths, flood myths, and goddess myths; gender in the Bible; the feminist approach to Jewish law; comparative Jewish and Christian perspectives on the Hebrew Bible; biblical perspectives on ecology; creating a theology of healing; feminine God-talk. The volume concludes with the author's own original prayers in the form of poetic meditations on pregnancy and birthing. This book is unique, not only because it is the only volume in the JPS Scholar of Distinction series written by a woman, but also because Frymer-Kensky's personal and forthright voice resonates so clearly throughout each piece.

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