Review quote

" ... An important contribution to current literary concerns with the ideologies of texts ... " Society of Old Testament Study Book List " ... She points the way into as yet little-explored territory, broadly engaging literary theory as well as ideological criticism ... She moves beyond both narrowly historical and exclusively text-centered criticism ... " Theology Today " ... Bal has given us both a coruscating feminist critique of biblical scholarship and a fund of provocative exegetical insights ... Required reading for anyone who wants to know where serious biblical scholarship is heading." Shofarshow more
