it was amazing

Highly recommend this to read alongside any Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) that you may be studying. All the contributors to this book (female theologians) bring a new aspect of how to view women in the Bible and the role that they played. Considering the Bible was written by men at a certain period of historical time, women are not portrayed in a very positive manner for the most part and are certainly consider "property" throughout the Hebrew Bible. These perspectives give much to pause and think about and provide a more balanced view, especially if read alongside other commentaries written by (white) men. Note: This was part of the reading for studying the Hebrew Scriptures for Education for Ministry (EfM).
