In the critically acclaimed best-seller Women's Bible Commentary, an outstanding group of women scholars introduced and summarized each book of the Bible and commented on those sections of each book that have particular relevance to women, focusing on female characters, symbols, life situations such as marriage and family, the legal status of women, and religious principles that affect relationships of women and men.

Now, this expanded edition provides similar insights on the Apocrypha, presenting a significant view of the lives and religious experiences of women as well as attitudes toward women in the Second Temple period. This expanded edition sets a new standard for women's and biblical studies.

Resource Experts
  • Provides a female perspective on the Bible's characters, contexts, and principles
  • Contains two chapters on the everyday life of women during the Hebrew Bible and New Testament periods

A remarkable volume that is fresh, provocative, and faithful. It is as faithful as Jacob is faithful in wrestling with the angel. Sometimes you can only know the truth by fighting back.

—Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite, Professor of Theology, Chicago Theological Seminary

This welcome and daring book has much to teach us that we cannot safely ignore. . . . A landmark in interpretation.

With the Women's Bible Commentary, careful and critical feminist biblical interpretation is made accessible for preaching, study groups, and seminary courses.

    Can Faithlife please update the cover art for this resource to the current 2012 third edition? This cover art is for the second edition. Awesome resource, highly recommend. Great scholarship and very well written.

    This commentary describes the story of the early church in the book of Acts as "the exportation of a nonnative imperial political religion to 'Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria, and to land’s end.'" That should tells you everything you need to know about this commentary.

    An excellent resource by a diversity of top-notch Biblical scholars. Well worth adding to one's collection of commentaries.

    The write up says it's for and about women and doesn't tell the whole truth about this resource. It is written by women who are hostile to the Bible, who are true feminists and refuse to use BC and AD for dates which you would expect believers to use. It is written by academics who know nothing about what women actually want to know about in the Bible - ie what does it look like to be a godly woman, how do women show the world their part of the image of God (as both individuals and as wives and mothers) and what God thinks about us. If this is what you, like me, are looking for you'd be better off either looking elsewhere or using your Logos library to create your own commentary to answer those questions.
