Available here for the first time in paperback, Women in Scripture is a landmark one-volume reference work exploring all the women mentioned in the Bible, named and unnamed, well known and heretofore not known at all. The book comprises more than 800 articles, written by the finest scholars in the field, that examine the numerous women who have often been obscured by the androcentric nature of the biblical record and by centuries of translation and interpretation that have paid little or no attention to them.

The women of scripture are remarkably varied--from prophets to prostitutes, military heroines to musicians, deacons to dancers, widows to wet nurses, rulers to slaves. Here are familiar faces, such as Eve, Judith, and Mary, seen anew with the full benefit of the most up-to-date biblical scholarship. But the most innovative aspect of the book is the section devoted to the many women who in the scriptures do not even have names.

In both scope and accessibility, Women in Scripture is an exceptional work. Combining rigorous scholarship with engaging prose, these articles on women in the Hebrew Bible, the Apocryphal/Deuterocanonical books, and the New Testament will inform, delight, and challenge all readers interested in the Bible.

Review:

Harvey Cox
"This is it―the one indispensable resource for anyone seriously interested in understanding the hundreds of women who appear in the Bible. Balanced, accurate, and fascinating to peruse and consult."

Roland E. Murphy
"By means of adroit organization and close textual reading, the invisible have become visible; the hidden influence of women, named and unnamed, in biblical times is now manifest from the hundreds of entries in this handy encyclopedia."

Susannah Heschel
"This is the most thorough and systematic survey ever undertaken of women in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures. The editors have gathered articles by the finest scholars, who present the most up-to-date results of biblical scholarship on women. An indispensable companion for anyone studying the Bible."

The Christian Science Monitor
"Women in Scripture is a remarkable reference book here to stay."

Publishers Weekly
"Prophets, poets, prostitutes ― and all other women named and unnamed in the Bible ― are finally given their due in what is not your usual biblical dictionary."

Library Journal
"Splendid. . . A monumental reference work that resurrects women from anonymity."
