Short Desription

Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza—who "stands among the most articulate and respected theologians who have challenged the silence and marginality . . . of Christian women" (The New York Times Book Review)—raises important questions: Can theoretical advances empower feminist struggles? Can they promote dignity, justice, inclusivity, and well-being? Is it enough simply to understand the Bible's oppressive role?

Examining these questions and more, Schüssler Fiorenza demonstrates how postmodernist biblical studies can enhance feminist biblical interpretation. She recovers for a new generation the work of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century feminist biblical interpreters, reassessing their influence on current thought. Through a close, insightful reading of several intriguing biblical passages, she shows us how reimagining the Bible can contribute to the spiritual struggle for a more just world and why we fail to embrace such an undertaking at our own peril. Spirited and accessible, Sharing Her Word is essential reading for all who want to understand how the Bible shapes our lives.
