Cheryl Anderson examines the laws relating to women that are found in the Book of the Covenant and the Deuteronomic law. She argues that the laws can be divided into those that treat women similarly to men (defined as 'inclusive' laws) and those that treat women differently ('exclusive' laws). She then suggests that the exclusive laws, which construct gender as male dominance/female subordination, do not just describe violence against women but are inherently violent toward women. As a non-historical critique of ideology, critical theory is used to offer analytical insights that have significant implications for understanding gender constructions in both ancient and contemporary settings.

About the Author:

Cheryl Anderson is Old Testament professor at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and a Methodist Minister. Previously she was a practicing attorney in Washington, D.C. Her other books include 'Women, Idelogy and Violence' (T&T Clark, 2004).

Review:

"Thought-provoking, provocative, and inspiring" Ilona Rashkow, Associate Professor of Judaic Studies, Women's Studies and Comparative Literature, The State University of New York

"I am very grateful for the strong stand that Anderson takes on violence against women, and the fact that she does not excuse the biblical text, try to redeem it, or see it as redemptive in some way. She does this in a nuanced way that does not simply victimize women" Erin Runions, Assistant Professor, Department of Religious Studies, Pomona College

"This book is to be commended, and, indeed, recommended. The sub-title promises a grounding in critical theory and on this the book delivers....I followed the presentation of this thesis with considerable interest and empathy and was grateful for the careful grounding of its insight. My hope is that it will be widely read." — The Bible and Critical Theory, Vol. 1 No. 3, 2005



'The argument of the book is carefully crafted, moving from an original exploration of individual legal elements from the biblical works as these apply to men and women, to suggestions as to how identity is thus constructed' (Dr Mary E Mills Expository Times)

'Subtitled: Critical Theiry and the construction of gender in teh Book of the Covenant and the Deuteronomic law, this is a study of OT laws relating to women. Both legal codes inscribe a patriarchial ideology that constructs masculinity as a male dominance and, correspondingly, female subordination, are inherently a form of violence.' International Review of Biblical Studies, vol 51, 2004/05

'interesting questions raised' (Bernard Robinson Pastoral Review)

"This book is to be commended, and, indeed, recommended. The sub-title promises a grounding in critical theory and on this the book delivers....I followed the presentation of this thesis with considerable interest and empathy and was grateful for the careful grounding of its insight. My hope is that it will be widely read." – The Bible and Critical Theory, Vol. 1 No. 3, 2005



'The argument of the book is carefully crafted, moving from an original exploration of individual legal elements from the biblical works as these apply to men and women, to suggestions as to how identity is thus constructed' (Sanford Lakoff Expository Times)
