Item description for Eve: Accused or Aquitted?: A Reconsideration of Feminist Readings of the Creation Narrative Texts in Genesis 13 (Paternoster Biblical Monographs) by Joseph Abraham & Gordon McConville...
Two contrary views dominate contemporary feminist biblical scholarship. One finds in the Bible an unequivocal equality between the sexes from the very creation of humanity, whilst the other sees the biblical text as irredeemably patriarchal and androcent
A detailed analysis of the diverse range of feminist interpretations of Genesis 1-3
Publishers Description Feminist interpretation has become one of the important text-centered literary methods in biblical interpretation. It challenges the authority, canonicity, veracity, and normativity of the biblical text due to its patriarchal-androcentric orientation. Feminist readers ask how far the patriarchal texts in the Bible can be authoritative and normative in articulating the theology and practices of the church.The author responds to these important questions both sympathetically and critically and considers whether they might have universal significance. He provides a lucid and thorough examination of the hermeneutical methodologies and presuppositions that lie behind many of the leading proponents of feminist readings of the Old Testament.The author asks whether Eve is unnecessarily accused by the traditional readers or is completely liberated by modern feminist readers.
