In this book, Phyllis Trible examines four Old Testament narratives of suffering in ancient Israel* Hagar, Tamar, an unnamed concubine and the daughter of Jephthah. These stories are for Trible the substance of life, which may imspire new beginnings and by interpreting these stories of outrage and suffering on behalf of their female victims, the author recalls a past that is all to embodied in the present, and prays that these terrors shall not come to pass again.;Texts of Terror is perhaps Trible's most readable book, that brings biblical scholarship within the grasp of the non-specialist. These sad stories about women in the Old Testament prompt much refelction on contemporary misuse of the Bible, and therefore have considerable relevance today.

The 'classics' are those books which in one way or another have made a lasting and determinative impact on the fields of theology and religious studies, and which have contributed to a variety of important conversations.^SCM Classics emerge from the most extensive and influential backlist of any British theological publisher, and have been comprehensively redesigned and re-packaged. Each book offers a preface from a leading contemporary theologian or biblical scholar, who explains the continuing significance and relevance of the volume in question. Essential reading for scholars, students and general readers alike, and an ongoing staple for all good bookshops, SCM Classics have already made a major impact on the religious publishing landscape.^Since ancient tales of terror speak all too frighteningly of the present, Trible's aim is here to tell what she calls 'sad stories': tales of terror with women as victims. Belonging to the sacred scriptures of synagogue and church, these narratives yield four portraits of suffering in ancient Israel: Hagar, Tamar, an unnamed concubine and the daughter of Jephthah. While seeking to cross this land of terror, from which 'no traveller returns unscarred', the author knows that sad stories may inspire new beginnings. By interpreting stories of outrage on behalf of their female victims she recovers a neglected history, recalls a past that the present embodies, and prays that these terrors shall not come to pass again.^Th
