This book is an attempt to search out the positive elements of the biblical tradition, as far as women are concerned, to bring them together in one place; to quote them in full (unfortunately most hurried modern persons will not reach for a Bible and look up the chapter and verse references); and to provide a context and brief commentary that will lift up their significance and implications as far as woman, her relationship to herself, to man, and to God are concerned.
The book is thought of primarily as a sort of companion, a vade mecum, which can be read in snippets as time and inclination allow, as one way for modern people to get into the riches of the biblical tradition and profit by its deeply human, and at times even surprisingly feminist, insights and values. However, this book is so designed that it can likewise be red in longer sitting so that an overview of developments can also be gained. Alternatively the book can also serve as a reference tool for those wanting to look up a feminist perception of certain passages or books.
