The discrimination of women is not a yesteryear phenomenon nor is it confined to one locality. To the dismay of many, however, this discrimination has often been the result of a certain interpretation of the Bible which itself undeniably is a product of a patriarchal world, of elite male religious specialists whose views created the dominant theological perspectives. Thus, where women are presented in the text, it is through male eyes and for purposes determined by male authors and one such case is the presentation of the Queen Mother, Jezebel by the Deuteronomist. This book offers an interesting dimension to the Jezebel story for it departs away from the ‘conceptual lens' that the Deuteronomist desired us use when looking at her. Using the feminist tool of counter repression the author rereads the narrative from the Queen's vantage point and in so doing rehabilitates her stained reputation. The book is designed to guide the student of the Bible through some of its inherent problems, highlighting thus the need to approach the Bible with a certain openness and not just take everything as it is. The book proves valuable also to those interested in studies on feministic theology.
