New and substantially expanded edition of a landmark work in biblical studies. Examines the entire Bible, including the Apocrypha, from a woman's perspective. All articles have been thoroughly revised or replaced with new articles. Takes account of all the major advances in feminist hermeneutics over the past two decades. The Women's Bible Commentary gathers the best feminist scholars in the field today to produce a commentary on every book of the Bible, including the apocryphal books, with additional articles on the reception history of biblical women, feminist critical method, and women's religious life in ancient Israel and the early Church. The commentary explores the ways in which women and other marginalized people are portrayed in the Bible, and raises questions about gender roles, sexuality, political power, and family life, while challenging long-held assumptions about how biblical texts should be read and appropriated for today.
