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)-explores postmodernist biblical studies through feminist interpretation in Sharing Her Word. She reclaims the work of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century feminist biblical interpreters, reassessing their influence on current thought. Through analyses of biblical passages, she shows us how reimagining the Bible can contribute to the spiritual struggle for a more just world. Spirited and accessible, Sharing Her Word is essential reading for all who want to understand how the Bible shapes our lives.
Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza is Krister Stendahl Professor of Scripture and Interpretation, Harvard Divinity School, USA.
