Fragmented women : feminist (sub)versions of biblical narratives by J. Cheryl Exum( )

33 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and Korean and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the biblical narratives, women are usually minor characters in the stories of men. Fragments of women''s stories must be gleaned from the more cohesive stories of their fathers, husbands and sons. Fragmented Women begins with the premise that, to recover shards of women''s stories from androcentric texts like the Bible, it is necessary to step outside the ideology of the text, subverting the patriarchal perspective that has focused attention on the male characters. In this important new work, the author draws on contemporary feminist literary theory to critique the dominant male voice of th

Song of songs : a commentary by J. Cheryl Exum( )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 907 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This commentary foregrounds at every turn the poetic genius of the Song of Songs, one of the most elusive texts of the Hebrew Bible. J. Cheryl Exum locates that genius in the way the Song not only tells but shows its readers that love is as strong as death, thereby immortalizing love, as well as in the way the poet explores love's nature with a mature sensitivity to how being in love is different for the woman and the man. Many long-standing conundrums in the interpretation of the book are given persuasive solutions in Exum's verse-by-verse exegesis. This, however, is not atomistic commentary. The focus throughout is on the poetry of the book - the illusion of immediacy it creates; the blurring of distinctions between anticipation, enjoyment, and satisfaction; and the resistance to closure."--Jacket
Tragedy and biblical narrative : arrows of the Almighty by J. Cheryl Exum( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study J. Cheryl Exum focuses on a neglected aspect of biblical narrative, its tragic dimension. Tragedy, she argues, poses questions about the elusive and necessary relationship of guilt, suffering, and evil that can only be resolved aesthetically, not thematically. The narratives discussed--the stories of Saul, of Jephthah, of the members of Saul's fated house, and of David--all grapple with the fact of human guilt, responsibility and accountability. They also through their portrayal of divinity as ambiguous, ambivalent, or in some other impalpable way problematic, implicate the deity in human misfortune and suffering. Using insights about tragedy, ancient and modern, the book offers detailed, provocative, and challenging new readings of texts whose unsettling and recalcitrant features cannot be adequately accounted for, or explained away, or reduced to something else. It suggests that the extraordinary range and power of biblical narrative has its source in the Bible's uncompromising portrayal of reality as embracing dissolution and despair in addition to resolution and repair

Art as biblical commentary : visual criticism from Hagar the wife of Abraham to Mary the mother of Jesus by J. Cheryl Exum( Book )

10 editions published between 2019 and 2021 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Art as Biblical Commentary is not just about biblical art but, more importantly, about biblical exegesis and the contributions visual criticism as an exegetical tool can make to biblical exegesis and commentary. Using a range of texts and numerous images, J. Cheryl Exum asks what works of art can teach us about the biblical text. 'Visual criticism' is her term for an approach that addresses this question by focusing on the narrativity of images-reading them as if, like texts, they have a story to tell-and asking what light an image's 'story' can shed on the biblical narrator's story.In Part I, Exum elaborates on her approach and offers a personal testimony to the value of visual criticism. Part 2 examines in detail the story of Hagar in Genesis 16 and 21. Part 3 contains chapters on erotic looking and voyeuristic gazing in the stories of Bathsheba, Susanna, Joseph and Potiphar's wife and the Song of Songs; on the distribution of renown among Jael, Deborah and Barak; on the Bible's notorious women, Eve and Delilah; and on the sacrificed female body in the stories of the Levite's wife (Judges 19) and Mary the mother of Jesus
