Item description for God and Rhetoric of Sexuality (Overtures to Biblical Theology) by Phyllis Trible...

Using a feminist hermaneutic, Phyllis Trible attempts to recover some of the female imagery found in Scripture.

Publishers Description
Focusing on texts in the Hebrew Bible, and using feminist hermeneutics, Phyllis Trible brings out what she considers to be neglected themes and counter literature. After outlining her method in more detail, she begins by highlighting the feminist imagery used for God; then she moves on to traditions embodying male and female within the context of the goodness of creation. If Genesis 2-3 is a love story gone awry, the Song of Songs is about sexuality redeemed in joy. In between lies the book of Ruth, with its picture of the struggles of everyday life.

Reviews - What do customers think about God and Rhetoric of Sexuality (Overtures to Biblical Theology)?

Bible friendly feminism  Jan 8, 2002
Trible manages to combine an egalitarian feminist outlook with great sensitivity and love for the original text of the Hebrew scriptures. She does not force a feminist reading on the Bible. Rather, she enriches our understanding by pointing out important biblical themes which are of special interest to feminists, but which may be appreciated by anyone seeking a fuller appreciation of scripture. I should point out that Trible respects the autonomy of the Hebrew scriptures; Jews as well as Christians have much to learn from this book.
Eat from tree of knowledge!  Apr 12, 1999
This book contains the most sensible and eye-opening answer I have yet encountered to the question, "Why are there two accounts of the creation of human beings in the book of Genesis?" Trible argues convincingly that the first account is the story of God's order, and the second account tells of a fallen human order. Her argument is so well-supported by the text that you will never again be able to read the creation story without exclaiming, "Wow! Phyllis Trible was right!"
