Item description for Preaching the Women of the Bible by Lisa Wilson Davison...

Overview
"Studying the women of the bible is a necessary and much-needed activity," says Lisa Wilson Davison. "It is the only way to right the wrongs of sexist interpretations of the Bible and the resulting oppression of women." Combining biblical exegesis with archaeological findings and the practice of midrash, Davison uncovers and brings to the forefront the roles that women have played in the development of faith. She shows us how much our foremothers have to teach us about living in relationship with God and one another. From the familiar-Mary and the mothers of Moses-to the relatively unknown-the daughter of Jephthah and Huldah, preaching about women of the Bible proclaims a more complete faith story and enriches our understanding. Davison focuses on ten women whose contributions have been over-looked or under represented. For each she provides an exegetical introduction to the text, historical and cultural context, insights for sermons, and a sample sermon.

Preaching the Women of the Bible  May 2, 2008
This book was part of our book sales table for our women's spring events in Kansas and it was often purchased by women who were planning to give it to their pastor. It was well received. We sold all the copies we had on hand and could have sold more.
