The Girls and Women of the Bible

Rate this:
Old Testatment stories center around men. Leaders, prophets, kings, and priests are all male. But hidden in the background are strong-willed, daring females.

Jane Yolen and Barbara Diamond Goldin's masterful retellings pairs elqouent profiles with stunning art, answering one question- What makes these women heroes? From first woman, Eve, to Deborah the judge, to Queen Esther, savior of her people, females in the Hebrew bible are resourceful and courageous.

Each chapter is devoted to a single story with text complemented by sidebars, known in Jewish tradition as "midrashim," that pose questions, provide more information, and include nondemoninational interpretations.
