Overtures to Biblical Theology #2: God and Rhetoric of Sexuality

by

Overtures to Biblical Theology #2: God and Rhetoric of Sexuality Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Focusing on texts in the Hebrew Bible, and using feminist hermeneutics, Phyllis Trible brings out what she considers to be neglected themes and counter literature. After outlining her method in more detail, she begins by highlighting the feminist imagery used for God; then she moves on to traditions embodying male and female within the context of the goodness of creation. If Genesis 2-3 is a love story gone awry, the Song of Songs is about sexuality redeemed in joy. In between lies the book of Ruth, with its picture of the struggles of everyday life.
