 About the Book 

This handbook is a gold mine, a must for all who care about women and religion or the history of the reception of the biblical texts. Page after page, article after article I found myself riveted by what I was learning.--Dale C. Allison Jr.,MoreThis handbook is a gold mine, a must for all who care about women and religion or the history of the reception of the biblical texts. Page after page, article after article I found myself riveted by what I was learning.--Dale C. Allison Jr., Pittsburgh Theological SeminaryThis handbook is as important as it is fascinating--important for its unparalleled ability to give ear to voices long forgotten and often silenced and fascinating for the way it turns the spotlight on the difficult but spectacular story of how women have engaged the Scriptures as they worked to take their rightful places in pulpits, at lecterns, and around the tables of biblical interpretation. I found myself sometimes amazed, sometimes humbled, and often inspired.--Joel B. Green, Fuller Theological SeminaryThis deeply researched and beautifully organized volume fills a huge gap, one which most biblical scholars and church historians never noticed was there. It yields insight into how richly and variously the Bible functioned in diverse communities from late antiquity to modern times as reflected in the lives and writings of remarkable women. The history of biblical interpretation will never look the same again.--Ellen F. Davis, Duke Divinity SchoolThis most welcome handbook provides a wealth of information about an overlooked dimension of the history of biblical interpretation. The array of interpreters covered here is breathtaking. Marion Ann Taylor has made a real contribution with this expertly edited volume, which recovers and analyzes womens voices. This splendid work deserves a primary place among biblical interpretation resources and much praise for its extensive and exciting discoveries.--Donald K. McKim, editor, Dictionary of Major Biblical InterpretersWhat a gift and an invitation this book is! For too long I have been frustrated at my own lack of knowledge about the history of womens interpretive engagement with the Bible. Marion Taylors astonishing book changes everything. The judicious choice of women interpreters, the succinct but informative articles, and the immensely valuable bibliographies suddenly make it possible to teach and to write about womens interpretation of the Bible throughout history.--Carol A. Newsom, Emory UniversityThrough pioneering and painstaking research, the Handbook of Women Biblical Interpreters brilliantly puts on display the insights and reflections of women on the most important book in the history of the world. I have been waiting eagerly for this handbook, and I will henceforth consult it frequently and with delight. All serious students of the Bible need to add it to their collection--especially those who dont think they need it.--Timothy Larsen, Wheaton College
