The Israelite Woman
Full Product Description
In Part II the focus is on the typical roles in which Hebrew women appear in biblical stories, as mother of the hero, as tempress, as foreigner, and as ancestress. In these narratives, for which there are standard plots and structures and characterizations readily available, women play a generally domestic role. Not only is the book a highly valuable resource detailing the social role of women in ancient Israel, and showing how the interpretation of women in the bible has been influenced by convention, but also it is a challenging reminder of how outdated attitudes can still prevail.
The Israelite Woman by Athalya Brenner-Idan was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in November 2014. The ISBN for The Israelite Woman is 9780567657732.
