Item description for From Deborah to Esther by Lillian R. Klein...

Overview
The Hebrew Bible's fascinating narratives about women have occasioned some of the most important biblical scholarship of the last generation. Lillian Klein contributes to that wealth with her absorbing studies of key figures in the narrative material: Deborah, Jephtha's daughter, Delilah, Jael, the whore of Gaza, Kaleb's daughter Achsah, Hannah, Esther, the wife of Job, David's wife Michal, and Bathsheba. With a marvelous eye for the telling detail - or its absence - Klein examines the biblical portraits, often unfortunately brief, of these women and the dynamics of gender, power, and honor at work in their stories. A remarkably lucid and careful scholar, Klein has surfaced the underlying and ironic ideals of womanhood in a society that both honored and marginalized women in stories of seduction and rivalry, deviation and obedience, public shame and private power.

Reviews - What do customers think about From Deborah to Esther?

A good overall analysis of several Biblical women  Mar 14, 2007
Klein nuances many of the original Hebrew words, gives some descriptions of the mores of the time period, and proposes some alternative theories as well as psychoanalytic insights. The most interesting is her comparing and contrasting Naomi with Job.
