Item description for Warrior, Dancer, Seductress, Queen: Women in Judges and Biblical Israel (The Anchor Yale Bible Reference Library) by Susan Ackerman...

Some of the Bible's most memorable characters are women in the Book of Judges, from Deborah and Jael to Delilah and Samson's mother. Susan Ackerman offers an analysis of the types of women found in Judges and examines other Biblical books and ancient Near Eastern literature to demonstrate how these types recur elsewhere.

Reviews - What do customers think about Warrior, Dancer, Seductress, Queen: Women in Judges and Biblical Israel (The Anchor Yale Bible Reference Library)?

Interesting conjecture at places, but a bit too dry and repeative.  Jan 1, 2007
Susan Ackerman's study of the book of Judges in a feminist light does offer some interesting angles on the familiar(Samson) and the not-so familiar(the shrewd wife that managed the land well). But most of this book was just dry, dense academia that did not capture me. The literary equivilent of fiber; good to read, hard to digest.
 
Challenging reading - but worth it!  Dec 18, 2000
Reading this work by Ackerman opened a whole new world to me: the rich variety of women in the Book of Judges. I must admit that I had never really noticed before that almost all of the women in Genesis and in Exodus acted mainly to preserve the life of a male or the continuation of a male lineage. (For example, all those wonderful women in the early chapters of Exodus - Shiphrah, Puah, Miriam, Jochebed, the daughter of the king - were trying to save the life of Moses). But in Judges we encounter a feast of women of all sorts of different types. I must also confess that at times I found Ackerman's interpretations very challenging - both intellectually and spiritually, but the benefits gained by reading this book were worth the challenges.
