I am a fan of Gafney's work, but was worried that this piece might not be accessible for "the average consumer." Not the case at all! I use one of her chapters with participants in a church Bible study and, with a little help, the people fully engaged around the material.

This book is unique in its genre. It not only gives a great overview of scholarship about women prophets in the Hebrew Bible, but it offers its own theses including the idea that there are many more female voices than the modern reader recognizes in the Hebrew Bible. Gafney is thoughtful and convincing.

This book is a great read for anyone looking to expand their understanding of women's roles in Ancient Israel. While Rev. Gafney is Christian, I found her to be completely non-dogmatic. I was actually very surprised to learn she is Christian and not Jewish, based on her writing in this book.

As a Kohenet ([...]), this book fit beautifully into the teachings of my religious order and expanded my understanding of certain areas of the text we had studied.

I recommend this book to anyone Jewish or Christian looking to explore women's roles and traditions in the Torah.

This is an excellent book. It gives a good overview of women prophets in Hebrew scriptures and also in the wider Ancient Near Eastern Environment. The book is well documented and provides great bibliographical resources for those wanting to pursue further research.

this book was horrible, she needs to learn her writing style and maybe fix the book. I would not suggest anyone read this.
