Wisdom's Feast

An Invitation to Feminist Interpretation of the Scriptures
$11.79
($16.00)
Offers a smorgasbord of tantalizing new perspectives on familiar biblical passages

Woman Wisdom in Proverbs 9 invites any who want to learn her ways to come and eat at her table an image for the rich and satisfying teaching that she offers. In this book Barbara Reid invites readers to this feast, drawing on women s wisdom to offer fresh new interpretations of biblical texts in a way that promotes equal dignity and value for women and men alike.

Reid begins by presenting feminist methods of biblical interpretation and explaining why they are important, giving attention not only to gender perspectives but also to race, class, and culture as determinative factors in how one understands the biblical text. She then presents fresh, readable feminist interpretations of selected Old and New Testament texts. Each chapter concludes with discussion questions for group or personal use.

Making feminist interpretation of Scripture understandable, compelling, and usable, Wisdom s Feast will be valuable to any readers hungry to learn from the rich insights of feminist biblical scholars.
