Overview

Wisdom is a prominent theme of much of Scripture—perhaps most vividly in Proverbs, but also in Apocryphal and New Testament writings. Gendering Wisdom the Host examines the role of women in wisdom literature, and the feminine Wisdom in particular. McKinlay provides a close reading of Proverbs, Ben Sira, and the Gospel of John to help explain the gendered norms of the text—both in the text itself and in the assumptions of listeners and readers of the text. She also explores the extent to which a gendered understanding of Wisdom affects exegesis and interpretation.
