An appreciation for the voices of biblical women that contrast long-held beliefs about their role and value, this book provides a framework for women to use their life experiences, intellect, and faith to question and interpret biblical texts. The book challenges traditional interpretations of the stories of selected biblical women by asking difficult questions, such asWhere are the stories of women? Why are many of them labeled prostitutes, virgins, or mothers?andWhat has been written or left unwritten about these women in the Bible?The stories of many womensome familiar and some notshepherd readers toward biblical literacy through a greater understanding of the biblical author's intent, the geographical location of the story, and the culture of the time. Backed by extensive research and told in accessible and engaging prose, it provides a window into the lives of biblical women who have had their stories told about them but have not told their own story.
