Frymer-Kensky (biblical studies, Constructionist Rabbinical Coll., Philadelphia) has gathered a remarkable collection of prayers, birth incantations, and scriptural narratives as a spiritual guidebook for pregnant women and mothers. Included here are documents from the ancient Sumerian and Akkadian religious traditions as well as sometimes more familiar materials from the Jewish and Christian traditions. The materials are nicely arranged to reflect the stages of pregnancy from quest and formation to labor and birth. Frymer-Kensky's introductions to the prayers are moving and insightful, and the prayers themselves connect the readers with the experience of pregnancy and childbirth over the ages. A powerful and moving book, it deserves a special place in all collections.
