Woman Wisdom in Proverbs 9 invites any who want to learn her ways to come and eat at her table—an image for the rich and satisfying teaching that she offers. In this book Barbara Reid invites readers to this feast, drawing on women's wisdom to offer fresh new interpretations of biblical texts in a way that promotes equal dignity and value for women and men alike. Reid begins by presenting feminist methods of biblical interpretation and explaining why they are important, giving attention not only to gender perspectives but also to race, class, and culture as determinative factors in how one understands the biblical text. She then presents fresh, readable feminist interpretations of selected Old and New Testament texts. Each chapter concludes with discussion questions for group or personal use. Making feminist interpretation of Scripture understandable, compelling, and usable, Wisdom's Feastwill be valuable to any readers hungry to learn from the rich insights of feminist biblical scholars.

This is a completely revised edition of Gold Medallion Award-winning Expositor’s Bible Commentary. This revised commentary has undergone substantial revisions that keep pace with current evangelical scholarship and resources. Just as its previous edition, it offers a major contribution to the study and understanding of the Scriptures. Providing pastors and Bible students with a comprehensive and scholarly tool for the exposition of the Scriptures and the teaching and proclamation of the gospel, this ten-volume reference work has become a staple of seminary and college libraries and pastors’ studies worldwide. Its fifty-six contributors—thirty of them are new—represent the best in evangelical scholarship committed to the divine inspiration, complete trustworthiness, and full authority of the Bible.As before, The Expositor’s Bible Commentary features full NIV text, but also refers freely to other translations and to the original languages. In addition to its exposition, each book of the Bible has an introduction, outline, and an updated bibliography. Notes on textual questions and special problems are correlated with the expository units; transliteration and translation of Semitic and Greek words make the more technical notes accessible to readers unacquainted with the biblical languages. In matters where marked differences of opinion exist, commentators, while stating their own convictions, deal fairly and irenically with opposing views.

This comprehensive, cutting-edge commentary brings together the work of several scholars and pastors known for their interest in the areas of gender, sexuality and Biblical studies. Rather than a verse-by-verse analysis, typical of more traditional commentaries, contributors to this volume focus specifically upon those portions of the Bible that have particular relevance for readers interested in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues. These include the construction of gender and sexuality, the reification of heterosexuality, the question of lesbian and gay ancestry within the Bible, the transgendered voices of the prophets, the use of the Bible in contemporary political, socio-economic and religious spheres and the impact upon lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities. Accordingly, the commentary raises new questions and re-directs more traditional questions in fresh and innovative ways, offering new angles of approach.

Eine kurze Geschichte der Menschheit

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Zwei weise Männer, eine Botschaft Sie sind zwei der bedeutendsten Leitfiguren unserer Zeit: Seine Heiligkeit der Dalai Lama und Erzbischof Desmond Tutu. Obwohl ihr Leben von vielen Widrigkeiten und Gefahren geprägt war, strahlen sie eine Freude aus, die durch nichts zu erschüttern ist. Im Buch der Freude vereinen die „Brüder im Geiste“ ihre immense Lebenserfahrung und die Weisheit ihrer Weltreligionen zu einer gemeinsamen zentralen Erkenntnis: Nur tief empfundene Freude kann sowohl das Leben des Einzelnen als auch das globale Geschehen spürbar zum Positiven wandeln. Unabhängig von allen Herausforderungen und Krisen, mit denen wir täglich konfrontiert werden, können wir diese Energie in uns entfalten und weitergeben. So wird die Freude zur Triebkraft, die unserem Dasein mehr Liebe und Sinn verleiht – und zugleich Hoffnung und Frieden in unsere unsichere Welt bringt.

With eyes of flesh

the Bible, gender and human rights

Author: Carole R. Fontaine

Carole Fontaine, well known among biblical scholars for her feminist studies in the biblical wisdom traditions and the ancient Near East, is also a human rights and interfaith activist working on issues of violence against Muslim women in the Middle East and Southern Asia and a board member of many agencies such as the International Network for the Rights of Female Victims of Violence in Pakistan, and the Women's Forum against Fundamentalism in Iran. In this collection of her essays, mostly previously unpublished, she brings together these two concerns, distilling from the scriptures of Judaism, Christianity and Islam valuable insights into current questions of human rights. Unlike many writers, Fontaine recognizes the critical role of gender in the fundamental concept of the 'Other', so determinative for our view of humanity. In our days, Fontaine argues, human rights issues have taken on a new dimension in political discourse about war, peace and terror, where often an appeal is made to religious and scriptural justifications for the violation or preservation of rights. Fontaine urges attention to the priority of the sufferer in adjudicating meaning, and turns to the 'little texts' of daily ethics rather than grand theological abstractions in order to place 'scriptures' in meaningful conversation with the concrete realities of our world.

With feminism grafted on to Christianity, how will the Church continue its growth? Asking this question in a series of personal essays that reflect on the phenomenon of religion, Gail Ramshaw proposes a way of Christian belief, worship, and ethics that grows out of the Bible, Christian tradition, and feminist consciousness. In evocative prose marked by honest inquiry, Ramshaw presents feminist Christianity as she hopes it will be: intellectually respectable, communally shared, ritually profound, and ethically inspiring.

Der dressierte Mann

In ihrer unkonventionellen Streitschrift dreht Esther Vilar die stereotypen Rollenmuster um und wurde damit zur Bestsellerautorin: Bei ihr ist die Frau der Herr im Haus. Sie dressiert den Mann, lässt ihn für sich arbeiten, für sich denken, für sich Verantwortung tragen. Der Mann ist stark, intelligent, phantasievoll, die Frau ist schwach, dumm und phantasielos. Warum wird trotzdem der Mann von der Frau ausgebeutet und nicht umgekehrt? Esther Vilar enttarnt ihre feministischen Geschlechtsgenossinnen als abgebrühte Ausbeuterinnen, die sich vor allem ihr äußeres Erscheinungsbild zu Nutze machen. Esther Vilar ist mit »Der dressierte Mann« das beste Beispiel dafür, dass auch provozierende Bücher zu Klassikern werden können.
