Women play prominent roles in the biblical narrative. Stories of Eve, Sarah, Ruth, Esther, and countless other women are central to the message of the Bible. The women of Scripture raise important questions for modern readers. What do these stories reveal about women in Scripture? What do they reveal about their cultural context? What do they reveal about modern interpretations of Scripture?
This collection draws from a wide range of interdisciplinary scholarship to examine the relationship between gender and the Bible—from Old Testament scholars to critical theorists, from historians to sociologists. The 12-volume Gender and the Bible Collection is devoted to the stories of women in the Bible, as well as matters of interpretation and perspective. The authors examine the social and political roles of women in the Bible, the position in relation to Old Testament law, and prominent women in the biblical narrative, such as Esther and Ruth. The authors also tackle complicated interpretive matters, such as the history and influence of feminist interpretation. This collection contains essential material for pastors preaching on stories of women in Scripture, and for anyone interested in exploring complex matters of interpretation.
