Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Ochs offers readers a rare treat--fine scholarship combined with inspirational connections to life in the modern world."--Jewish Book World

"With warmth, erudition, and a very contemporary sensibility, Ochs offers reflections on the lives of Old Testament matriarchs that should appeal to women across religious lines."--Publishers Weekly

In this vivid collection, religious scholar Vanessa Ochs brings the legends of the biblical matriarchs to new life using her own form of midrash, a creative but scholarly reinterpretation of sacred works that puts flesh and bones on the original. Finding her own, distinctly female voice in this traditional art, Ochs retells the incredible stories of the biblical matriarchs, filling in the gaps and answering some of the key questions left behind by the original text.

By learning about the gifts of these ancient women, you'll discover exhilarating ways to embrace your own personal gifts and gain fresh insight into:

  • Finding your inner wisdom
  • Speaking your true self
  • Being a good friend
  • Maintaining romantic partnerships
  • Raising a family
  • Letting go of children
  • Feeling blessed with a life well lived
  • And much more

Synopsis:

In the inspirational tradition of the bestseller The Red Tent, a powerful retelling of the stories of Old Testament matriarchs

“In Ochss hands, each story becomes a wellspring of insights that can empower us to think and act differently in our own lives.”

Jewish Woman

“Ardently and unstoppably upbeat”

Library Journal
