The feminist Companion to the Bitle (second series) This sparkling new collection of studies covers topics such as the Queen of Heaven, Saying No to a Prophet, Circumcision of the Prostitute, with the section on Daniel addressing, among other things, the wise queen mother of Daniel 5, and the Obtuse Foreign Ruler. This sparkling new collection of studies includes a reassessment of previous feminist exegesis, reconsiders women as prophets and takes a new look at goddesses. In particular, it looks more closely at the 'porno-prophetic' marriage metaphor. Essays include Judith Hadley on the Queen of Heaven, Mary Shields on 'Circumcision of the Prostitute', Julia M. O'Brien on 'Saying "No" to a Prophet', and articles by Esther Fuchs, Renat Jost and Rainer Kessler. The section on Daniel comprises A. Brenner on the 'Obtuse Foreign Ruler' in the Hebrew Bible, H. van Deventer on Women's Wisdom in Daniel 5, and an essay by Emily Sampson.
