Editorial Reviews

Review

Exploring teh Bible's presentations of Eve, Sarah and Hagar, Delilah, Ruth, Judith, and Susanna and the re-presentation of their stories in painting and film, novels and children's books, opera and theology, Clanton prompts enw ways of reading, seeing, hearing, and understanding. Instructive for anyone interested in the cultural appropriations of Scripture, the volume would make an excellent textbook for the undergraduate classroom.
— Amy-Jill Levine, E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of New Testament Studies, Vanderbilt Divinity School


Clanton's exploration of the portrayal of biblical women through a variety of interpretive traditions, ranging from rabbinic commentary to contemporary television programs with attention to the visual and aural as well as the textual, reflects the complex ways that modern audiences engage and inherit these images. The breadth of sources he touches upon makes this book truly unique and ensures that readers will take away new insights into these sometimes problematic, but always popular, images.
— Lynn R. Huber, Assistant Professor of Religous Studies, Elon University


As it becomes increasingly difficult to make contributions to the vast body of biblical scholarship that are both original and significant, many have turned their attention to musical and artisitc interpretations of the text. Dan Clanton provides a superb example of how these works should be studied. He helps readers approach the Bible wtih new eyes and ears keenly attuned to hitherto unnoticed-or ignored-dimensions of its leading female characters.
— Patrick Gray, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies, Rhodes College
