I Am...

Athalya Brenner

I Am...

Athalya Brenner

$28.99

Paperback
Brenner gives voice to many of the otherwise almost voiceless female characters of the Hebrew Bible, adding her imagination & creativity to detailed research, to produce an important work of feminist Biblical scholarship.

- Publisher Athalya Brenner is Professor of Hebrew Bible at the University of Amsterdam (Netherlands) and Roslyn and Manny Rosenthal Distinguished-Professor-in-Residence at Brite Divinity School (Fort Worth, Texas).

- Publisher Athalya Brenner presents fictionalized "autobiographies" of a dozen women and women groups in the Hebrew Bible, and also lets them share a conversation session. This allows her to include how these women have been interpreted - not only in the Bible itself, but also in Jewish and Christian traditions and by modern commentators. The result is a thoroughly engaging and insightful look at women, from a leading biblical interpreter who has a very creative edge to all her work.
