Studies in Bible and Feminist Criticism (JPS Scholar of Distinction Series)

Framsida
Jewish Publication Society, 1 jan. 2010 - 463 sidor
Each of the 30 essays here delves into a topic that gives us much food for thought: the Bible as interpreted through ancient Near-Eastern creation myths, flood myths, and goddess myths; gender in the Bible; the feminist approach to Jewish law; comparative Jewish and Christian perspectives on the Hebrew Bible; biblical perspectives on ecology; creating a theology of healing; feminine God-talk. The volume concludes with the author's own original prayers in the form of poetic meditations on pregnancy and birthing. This book is unique, not only because it is the only volume in the JPS Scholar of Distinction series written by a woman, but also because Frymer-Kensky's personal and forthright voice resonates so clearly throughout each piece. Scholars and students of Bible, Jewish studies, and women's studies will surely find this to be a one-of-a kind collection.

Sida 80 - Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity.
Sida 312 - It is not because you are the most numerous of peoples that the LORD set His heart on you and chose you — indeed, you are the smallest of peoples; but it was because the LORD loved you and kept the oath He made to your fathers that the LORD freed you with a mighty hand and rescued you from the house of bondage, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
Sida 312 - Know, therefore, that only the Lord your GOD is GOD, the steadfast GOD who keeps His gracious covenant to the thousandth generation of those who love Him and keep His commandments...
Sida 307 - be imitators of me as I am of Christ
Sida 180 - But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife ; and they twain shall be one flesh : so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Sida 338 - As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.
Sida 85 - When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?
Sida 65 - Would to God we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full ; for ye have brought Us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.
Sida 15 - ... all those abhorrent things were done by the people who were in the land before you, and the land became defiled. 28] So let not the land spew you out for defiling it, as it spewed out the nation that came before you.
