Capa
Macmillan, 18 de mar. de 2008 - 322 páginas

Whatever the reason--"it’s too complicated, too big, too old, too many men and too few women, and anyway, I don’t know whether I believe it or not”--Eve's Bible helps explain the Old Testament to readers regardless of their religious affiliation.

Eve's Bible challenges conventional ideas about women in the Bible, and shows readers how to draw upon the deep wellsprings of their own truth to interpret the Bible in new and liberating ways.

With Eve’s Bible as their companion, readers will be able to:

* Recognize and read the Old Testament’s literary building blocks: histories, stories, laws, poetry, prophecy, and wisdom.

*Answer the question, “Is the Bible historical?”* Learn how women in the biblical era lived

* Learn why the biblical Deity is such a complex character

* Derive meaning from scripture by balancing left-brained inquiry with heart-felt intuition.

*Become their own authority on the Bible

A friendly guide that anticipates readers’ questions and concerns, Eve’s Bible helps readers find their way through the Bible with intelligence and verve.
