Item description for Daughter Zion Talks Back To The Prophets: A Dialogic Theology of the Book of Lamentations (Society of Biblical Literature Semeia Studies) by Carleen R. Mandolfo...
"Daughter Zion Talks Back to the Prophets" offers a new theological reading of the book of Lamentations by putting the female voice of chapters 1-2 into dialogue with the divine voice of prophetic texts in which God represents the people Israel as his wife and indicts them/her for being unfaithful to him. In Lam 1-2 we hear the "wife" talk back, and from her words we get an entirely different picture of the conflict showcased through this marriage metaphor. Mandolfo thus presents a feminist challenge to biblical hegemony and patriarchy and reconstrues biblical authority to contribute to the theological concerns of a postcolonial world. Paperback edition is available from the Society of Biblical Literature (www.sbl-site.org)
