Susan Ackerman

$99.00

Hardback
Some of the Bible's most memorable characters are the women in the book of "Judges". From Deborah and Jael to Delilah and Samson's mother, these women led the Israelites in battle, used their wits to defeat the enemy, their wiles to seduce mighty men, and their wisdom to prevail on God. In "Warrior, Dancer, Seductress, Queen" author Susan Ackerman offers a keen analysis of the main types of women found in "Judges" and examines other biblical books and ancient Near Eastern literature to demonstrate how these types recur elsewhere. Thorough yet entertaining, her study leaves readers with an understanding of what roles these women played in Israelite society and religion. The first female author to be published in the Anchor Bible Reference Library, Ackerman and her cutting-edge biblical scholarship will be a valuable addition to this venerable series.
