Recommends it for: people interested in women in the bible!
I learned more about the bible from reading this book than all 10 years of catholic school! I read this for a class in college, but I got really into it. Not only do you gain a better insight into the women characters of the bible who are usually marginal, but you learn how to interpret & understand the whole bib in general.

Shelves: bible, women-feminism
The authors of these essays/mini-commentaries raise often neglected issues and ask really important questions. The kind of book that's extremely helpful even if you don't agree with aspects of it.

I'm reading this for my New Testament class. Some of the commentaries are wonderfully insightful.
