Battered love : marriage, sex, and violence in the Hebrew prophets by Renita J Weems( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Spanish and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Weems's study explores the puzzling ways in which the Hebrew prophets' portrayals of divine love, compassion, and conventional commitment often became associated with battery, infidelity, and the rape and mutilation of women. She wrestles with the prophets' rhetoric and sexual metaphors to uncover Israelite social structures, asking, "What is implied about women, men, and God by the language that the prophets use to describe the covenant between Yahweh and Israel?" This work delves into issues of intimacy and power, violence and control, seduction and betrayal.--From publisher's description
