Description: Since the 1960s, many biblical scholars have studied the Bible with a focus on gender. Yet such research is only slowly reaching a wide audience beyond the academy. Women in Scripture opens this field to anyone fascinated by the Bible -- a body of literature that has singularly influenced Western civilization.

The women represented in this volume are remarkably varied: prophets, poets, prostitutes, military heroines, musicians, wet nurses, rulers, professional mourners, wealthy supporters of the Jesus movement, widows, and slave girls, to name a few. The editors have taken on the ambitious task of identifying every woman mentioned in the Bible, whether named, unnamed, or representing a deity or an abstract quality such as wisdom.

In breadth of coverage, Women in Scripture stands alone. More than eight hundred articles, written by both new and established experts, examine women who have been obscured by the androcentric nature of the biblical record and largely neglected throughout centuries of translation and interpretation. The largest section of the book deals with unnamed women, a group that has often been over-looked.

Combining rigorous scholarship with engaging prose, these articles on women in the Hebrew Bible, the apocryphal/deuterocanonical books, and the New Testament will challenge and delight all readers interested in the Bible. Both in scope and in accessibility, Women in Scripture is a groundbreaking work.
