Format: Paperback
Trible provides some excellent insight into women's roles in the history of the three big religious traditions - Judaism, Christianity, and Islam; it's a good read, pretty quick, and opens your eyes to the huge role gender plays in the biblical narratives, even though gender tends to be downplayed by the Christian church and arguably even the biblical accounts themselves.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By E. Vernon on May 9, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really interesting, well-researched book. The book is written academically, it is not a story or a fictional tale. It incorporate information from the various religious books as well as historical commentary. You can tell that the author did a lot of research and I learned a lot from her summary of the various stories and interpretations of the story of Abram and his wife.

4/5 stars because there is not a lot of information about Hagar. I was hoping it would reveal new information about her, but it does not go very much beyond what is written in the Torah, Quran, and Bible. Most of the book was focused on Sarah and Abraham.

However, it was still very interesting. It definitely left me with questions and prompted me to continue reading to find more information.

This is a scholarly combination of exegesis and commentary. Phyllis Trible is detailed, as always, and brings up interesting thoughts about the women in the stories. The discussion by the other authors helps the reader think through the implications of the scripture. Letty Russell was a great theologian.

Had no idea that one story in Genesis could have so many interpretations, all seemingly valid! The roles of Abraham and Ishmael in the Muslim tradition is especially intriguing. My only criticism is the rather small typeset is a challenge for my macular degeneration.
