“Women’s history has few celebrations uniquely its own. This work, published to honor the centennial of Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s The Woman’s Bible, provides such an occasion for the female academic community . . . Schüssler Fiorenza (Harvard Divinity School) . . . indicates a clear path between totally rejecting Scripture for its patriarchy and simply selecting from the Bible what suits the purposes of feminism. Instead, Fiorenza sets the stage for a hermeneutic of both suspicion and revision, which one hopes will be continued in the forthcoming volume. Her interpretation pulls from Christian history, Liberation theology, and ecumenism as she calls on white and nonwhite women to give such issues as racism, native cultures, economics and  religion depth and context. Academic in tone and well footnoted, this work is definitely aimed at a scholarly audience, for whom it is highly recommended.”
