5.0 out of 5 stars Simultaneously exciting and disturbing..., February 11, 2001
By 
This review is from: The Word According to Eve: Women and the Bible in Ancient Times and Our Own (Hardcover)
There is plenty in this book that will rile people up. Some passages will have you shouting, "Yes!" and triumphantly pumping your fist. You will be so saddened by others that you are almost nauseated. You'll hate and despise other portions. Whichever you're in the midst of, you'll be thinking. And, that's what this book is...thought provoking. It opens up the field of feminist theology for the lay(wo)man. It is a thorough introductory work that leaves you eager to explore further. You'll be introduced to leaders in the field of feminist theology and their theories. You'll see Bible passages in a way you'd never quite read them before. Be prepared to scribble voluminous notes in the margins. An excellent bibliography will start you off on your bookcase additions and interlibrary loan requests.
This book takes a crowbar to your mind and rips it wide open. And that is a potent definition of a good book... You may love this book, or you might not like it at all -- But you'll be forced to respect it and it's place in religious reading. Highest recommendation...
