Synopses & Reviews
Eve, Sarah, Rachel, Delilah, Ruththeir names live on, but their ancient stories have been obscured. This newly issued paperback presents a sumptuously illustrated retelling of the lives of 18 women in the Hebrew Bible. Author Miki Raver pairs each vibrant and daring tale with an eloquent meditation on their meaning for modern women. Beautiful reproductions of classic Biblical art from such masters as Rubens, Brueghel, Raphael, and Chagall illustrate these dramatic stories. This rich marriage of art, literature, and spirituality offers substantive and entertaining reading, as well as a fresh entry into traditional faith. The perfect Chanukah or Bat Mitzvah gift, Listen to Her Voice is a book to treasure and share.
These aren't sweet stories about nice little women. Our ancestor-women were strong, independent, rebellious, courageous, and real. From Miki Raver's introduction
