About this title:

Synopsis: What if the women of the Bible told their own stories? Lady Midrash: Poems Reclaiming the Voices of Biblical Women brings to life alternative interpretations and forgotten female perspectives from the Hebrew Bible and New Testament. Following in the footsteps of Jewish midrash, a storytelling tradition that explores the gaps in scripture, these poems re-examine the experiences of Biblical women. Sidelined heroines are celebrated. Supposed villainesses get to speak for themselves. Lady Midrash reverses convention, probes familiar narratives, attends to small moments, highlights peripheral and silent characters, and names the nameless. The imagination of midrash provides the reader with a creative space to rethink assumptions and reconsider the accounts of women in the Jewish and Christian traditions.

From the Back Cover: "With creative imagination and careful scholarship, Elisabeth Mehl Greene reclaims the sacred value of biblical women. These compelling narrative poems give honor to the cursed, voice to the voiceless, names to the nameless, agency to the powerless, recognition to marginalized females and the Female Divine thereby affirming all women in the image of Divine Wisdom.The enlightening foreword, introduction, and end notes also make Lady Midrash ideal for church study groups, academic classes, and personal exploration." -Jann Aldredge-Clanton, Chaplain; Teacher; Author of Seeking Wisdom: Inclusive Blessings and Prayers for Public Occasions and Inclusive Hymns for Liberating Christians

"In this accessible collection, Greene gives voices to women in the Bible who have been silenced for too long. Greene's well-informed poems bear witness to the ways women have contributed to God's grand story, while also challenging readers to see the Bible in all its complexities. Reading these poems has deepened my appreciation for scripture and for the women whose lives are inscribed there." -Melanie Springer Mock, Professor, Department of English, George Fox University

"In Lady Midrash, Greene has written a series of poems that pique the reader's imagination and encourage us to learn and imagine more about women in the Bible. For study groups, these poems will stimulate spirited discussions and sacred contemplation as Dr. Greene's creativity and imagination open up the reader to new facets of well-known stories." -Carol Blythe, Alliance of Baptists
