Item description for Nameless, Blameless, and Without Shame: Two Cannibal Mothers Before a King (Interfaces series) by Gina Hens-Piazza...

Overview
Nameless, Blameless, and Without Shame is a character study of two obscure women before a king (2 Kings 6:24-33). It explores the violence encoded in the texts by the privileged powerful. The character study connects these cannibal mothers to portraits of other pairs of biblical mothers and their plight-the two mothers before Solomon, Sarah and Hagar, Rachel and Leah. This prompts us to search for counter-stories in the biblical tradition and in our own lives opposing the violence embedded there. The text and the tradition of interpretation would urge us to disregard, scorn, or even indict these two women and all they represent. However, the character analysis emerging out of this literary assessment argues in favor of elevating these nameless mothers as blameless.
