This book introduces readers to the diverse field of feminist studies on the "Hebrew Bible". Not organized as a traditional introduction to the "Old Testament," the manuscript does not follow a biblical book-by-book structure, but provides an introductory survey of the history and issues as they relate to feminist readings and readers of the "Hebrew Bible". Accordingly, feminist scholars of the Bible, their career struggles, and biblical texts, characters, and themes stand at the forefront of this introduction. The volume is biased toward "Western" feminist scholarship because of the historical developments of feminist scholarship in general and biblical studies in particular. Yet, the chapters also include African, Asian, and Latin American perspectives on feminist studies of the "Hebrew Bible". In short, it offers an overview on the historical, social, and academic developments of reading the "Hebrew Bible" as the "women's Hebrew Bible."

"Studying the lives of biblical women from an entirely feminist perspective may be a challenging endeavor. Susanne Scholz, a German-born professor of Religious Studies at Merrimack College in Massachusetts, introduces the reader to various aspects of that school of thought in this book, thirteenth in the Introductions in Feminist Theology series... This readable and thought provoking text will interest feminist groups."-Congregational Libraries Today--Sanford Lakoff
