A feminist companion to reading the Bible : approaches, methods and strategies by Athalya Brenner( Book )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Feminist Companion to Reading the Bible: Approaches, Methods and Strategies forms a conclusion to the series of 10 volumes published in the groundbreaking Feminist Companion to the Bible since 1993. Not only is this the companion to the Companion, but, it is at the same time the forerunner and companion to a second series of nine volumes of the Feminist Companion. In all, there will be a unique collection of 20 volumes representing the enormous range of influence that feminist criticism has come to have in biblical studies. Anchored always in particular biblical texts, the essays in this mul
Genesis : the feminist companion to the Bible by Athalya Brenner( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We all come from somewhere: no one is native to the biblical text, no one reads only in the interests of the text itself. North Atlantic and Western European scholarship has focused on the Bible's characters as individuals, has read past its miracles and stories of spiritual manifestations or 'translated' them into other categories, and has seen some aspects of the text in bold and other aspects not at all. These results of Euro-American contextual reading would be no problem if they were seen as such; but they have become a chain to be broken when they have been held up as the one and only 'objective, ' plain truth of the text itself."--Preface
On humour and the comic in the Hebrew Bible by Yehuda Thomas Radday( Book )

13 editions published between 1990 and 1995 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In comparison with other literary aspects of the Old Testament, humour has suffered much scholarly neglect. The present collection of essays (by the editors and ten other authors) argues that humour is plentiful in biblical literature and that many passages, indeed even whole books, can be properly understood only when the humorous intention of the author is acknowledged. This collection is a particularly interesting, innovative and provocative one
A feminist companion to Esther, Judith and Susanna by Athalya Brenner( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do we confront in these three characters feminist heroines or patriarchally idealised stooges? From the worldly Esther to the piously devout Susanna via the militant widow, these female figures appear both as meticulously sculpted individuals and as metaphors for a Jewish Community under threat. The wealth of antiguity in these characters is exposed to a wide range of perceptions in this marvellous collection
Colour terms in the Old Testament by Athalya Brenner( Book )

18 editions published between 1979 and 1983 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The OT semantic field of 'colour' is presented as a coherent, interdependent, and graded linguistic structure. The relevant lexical items are organized under the following categories: primary (basic) terms; secondary and tertiary terms; terms for pigments, dyes, painting and paints; and terms for stains, speckles, and other phenomena related to colour. Proper names, and names of objects which carry 'colour' associations are discussed as well. Many OT texts are discussed in detail. Finally, the OT colour field is compared to its Mishnaic Hebrew counterpart, and an Appendix dealing with the rene
The Song of Songs : a feminist companion to the Bible( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ten essays in this volume, the majority specially written, engage with questions of voice (whose?) and interplay (what kind?) between received interpretation and resisting female reader, and venture into methodological territory familiar and unfamiliar to biblical scholars, including autobiographical criticism."--BOOK JACKET
A feminist companion to the Hebrew Bible in the New Testament( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De bijdragen in deze bundel zijn onderverdeeld in 4 thema's: Hebrew bible characters recycled: some principles; Women and the feminine: New Testament women characters; On the gendering of the female body; Anti-judaism in the New Testament and its feminist interpretations
Ruth and Esther : a feminist companion to the Bible by Athalya Brenner( Book )

15 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second series of Feminist Companions moves beyond the confines of sex- and gender-specific issues and studies of biblical women. Biblical feminist critics now address contemporary life situations, marginalization and a range of questions once not thought accessible to such critique. Feminist theory has also continued a rapid evolution. Among the topics included in this volume are composition, Torah, Ruth-the-Cat, female networking-together with much else to inform and stimulate female (and male) biblical scholars and non-scholars
Wisdom and Psalms by Athalya Brenner( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While the Wisdom volume in the first Feminist Companion series investigated multiple aspects of characterizations of women found in Wisdom literature, the 13 essays in this volume move beyond the study of the characterization of females that formed one of the first steps of modern feminist criticism - the recovery of what had been ignored or trivialized by androcentric readings dominant through the centuries. This second volume takes up questions of voice, exclusion and construction as well as the reinforcement of world views that, while perhaps necessary to the survival of the postexilic community as a whole, nevertheless left a legacy of continued gender asymmetry in Judaism and Christianity."--BOOK JACKET
A feminist companion to wisdom literature( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The figures of the 'woman of worth' and the 'strange woman' in the book of Proverbs are examined, and feminist readings of the book of Job are also offered. The contributors to this volume are Lyn Bechtel, Athalya Brenner, Claudia Camp, Carole Fontaine, Mieke Heijerman, Lilli

Are we amused? : humour about women in the biblical worlds( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biblical humour remains elusive for many readers. Biblical humour about women and gender remains more problematic still, for its recognition may imply the realization that it is a cruel and disrespectful humour, ridicule rather than good-natured fun. But, whatever its intent, humour about women is also humour about men. In other words, it is humour about gender roles. The critique of women, womanhood and femaleness implied by the humour in biblical and related texts serves, in equal measure, as a critique of men, manhood and maleness -- in the texts, of the texts' authors, and of the texts' commentators and readers
