Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza-who "stands among the most articulate and respected theologians who have challenged the silence and marginality . . . of Christian women" (The New York Times Book Review)-explores postmodernist biblical studies through feminist interpretation in Sharing Her Word. She reclaims the work of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century feminist biblical interpreters, reassessing their influence on current thought. Through analyses of biblical passages, she shows us how reimagining the Bible can contribute to the spiritual struggle for a more just world. Spirited and accessible, Sharing Her Word is essential reading for all who want to understand how the Bible shapes our lives.

Synopsis:

Examining these questions and more, Schussler Fiorenza demonstrates how postmodernist biblical studies can enhance feminist biblical interpretation. She recovers for a new generation the work of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century feminist biblical interpreters, reassessing their influence on current thought. Through a close, insightful reading of several intriguing biblical passages, she shows us how reimagining the Bible can contribute to the spiritual struggle for a more just world and why we fail to embrace such an undertaking at our own peril. Spirited and accessible, Sharing Her Word is essential reading for all who want to understand how the Bible shapes our lives.
