More About the Author

I am a biblical scholar, Episcopal priest and seminary professor. I publish as Wilda and Wil Gafney. I have taught Biblical Hebrew, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies, Womanist, Feminist and Post-Colonial Biblical Studies for the past seven years at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia.
My scholarship includes prophecy and prophetic literature, rabbinic (Tanaaitic) literature, Ancient Near Eastern religious (especially prophetic and women's vocational) literature and traditional and contemporary midrash - biblical interpretation.
My personal love for vampire literature intersects with my professional biblical scholarship in my note in the Peoples' Bible on the Lilith who appears in Isaiah 34:14. She is regarded as the mother of vampires in later medieval midrash, but Isaiah had a much older night-stalking creature in mind...

13 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Sharon Lee Watts on April 10, 2011
Format: Hardcover
I am not African American; however I like to understand different perspectives when I read scripture. This book was written by excellent and balanced scholars who have an understandable and enriching perspective on the Old Testament. Gathering the way different groups of people hear the same scripture due to life and cultural experiences broadens the way you hear the Word of God. This is an excellent and very enjoyable book to use. I especially recommend the Exodus entry.

A must read for informing all of us persons of faith and those who are engaged in biblical interpretation that there is no immaculate perception.
