Publisher Comments:

"Every once in a while as we turn the pages of (this) impressive book, there is the temptation to sigh and shout an enthusiastic 'Amen!'" — Oakland Press

Book News Annotation:

**** Reprint of Stanton's attack on the Bible, originally published in 1895-98. The Arno Press reprint of 1972 is cited in BCL3.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The publication of The Woman's Bible in 1895 and 1898 represented the feminist pioneer's last strike at the roots of the ideology behind her gender's subordinate role in society. In keeping with her characteristic radical individualism, Stanton attacks religious orthodoxy on a political rather than scholarly basis. This clarion call to action consists of a book-by-book examination of the Bible, placing events in their historical context, interpreting passages as both allegory and fact, and comparing them with the myths of other cultures. It endures as an extraordinary document because of the questions it addresses, the topics it covers, and its still-resonant sincerity. Unabridged republication of the classic two-volume edition of 1895 and 1898.

Table of Contents
