Item description for Water from the Well: Women of the Bible: Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel, and Leah (P.S.) by Anne Roiphe...

Overview
A writer of women's lives for over thirty years, Roiphe turns her keen eye and graceful prose to the Bible and the stories of the Matriarchs--Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel, and Leah. The author makes the biblical landscape come alive as she focuses on these remarkable role models and their experiences of love and terror, pain and pleasure, routine and uncertainty.

Publishers Description

Water from the Well is a journey four thousand years back to the time of Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel, and Leah. The graceful prose of renowned author Anne Roiphe brilliantly captures these biblical women and makes their fascinating stories come alive.

As each story unfolds, we find that the matriarchs had to overcome the same devastating obstacles women face today--infertility, lust, abandonment, and uncertainty--yet they managed to cope with betrayal, death, sacrifice, and jealousy while dealing with the emerging reality of a new faith. This remarkable volume demonstrates how their lives helped to lay the foundation of womanhood in the Western world. Combining the deep insight of Bruce Feiler with the narrative skill of Antonia Fraser, Anne Roiphe delivers a fascinating work that deftly brings these four biblical matriarchs into our own age.
