Description: Translated from the German by Martin Rumscheidt
The original German edition of Feminist Biblical Interpretation received high acclaim and widespread positive reviews in Europe. That groundbreaking reference tool for contextual biblical interpretation is here available in English for the first time. With contributions from more than sixty female scholars, this is the only one-volume feminist commentary on the entire Bible, including books that are relatively uncharted territory for feminist theology.
Subjects: Bible, Literature, Methods, Ideological Critique, Feminist Approaches
