The Women's Bible Commentary is a trusted, classic resource for biblical scholarship, written by some of the best feminist scholars in the field today.

This twentieth anniversary edition features brand new or thoroughly revised essays to reflect newer thinking in feminist interpretation and hermeneutics. It comprises commentaries on every book of the Bible, including the apocryphal books; essays on the reception history of women in the Bible; and essays on feminist critical method.

The contributors raise important questions and explore the implications of how women and other marginalized people are portrayed in biblical texts, looking specifically at gender roles, sexuality, political power, and family life, while challenging long-held assumptions.

This commentary brings modern critical methods to bear on the history, sociology, anthropology, and literature of the relevant time periods to illuminate the context of these biblical portrayals and challenges readers to new understandings.

This small commentary is far from exhaustive, but provides a unique look at passages of particular interest to women. The scholarship is sound and passages covered are often quite in depth with insights that often are missed by those of us looking with male eyes. This makes this not only a wonderful resource for women wanting to hear their own voices, but also for men wanting to see how 52% of the population might be reading it. The scholars contributing to this fine work include famous female scholars like Carol A. Newsom, Katharine Doob Sakenfeld, Gale A. Yee, Gail R. O’Day, & Beverly Roberts Gaventa, as well as many other fine female scholars who perhaps less well known offers valuable insights. I have used this volume from it's original edition to this 20th anniversary expand edition. It is well worth owning giving voice to a formerly little heard group who ironically are the majority of the population.
