Feminist Companion Series
The Feminist Companion to the Bible Series, edited by Athalya Brenner (with Carole R. Fontaine as co-editor in 3 volumes) has long been regarded as the most respected series outlining feminist approaches to the Hebrew Bible.
The volumes contained within the series (published in two parts, originally by Sheffield Academic Press) represent a valuable distillation of scholarship in this area, but more than this they challenge our readings of biblical material and often result in a paradigmatic shift in the way texts are interpreted. Interpretation of the book of Ruth, for example, has been turned on its head by feminist bible scholars.
As is often the nature with collections such as this it has been difficult to keep all the volumes in print, and at an affordable price for students and scholars alike.
T&T Clark is delighted to now be bringing this valuable series back into print in its entirety with a new cover design (watch this space), and to be conducting a pricing review of the collection. We will also be presenting the collection in electronic format, for sale to libraries and institutions.
Release is planned for March 2010, and further details will be announced both here and on our website.
‘An enterprising series of collections of important and pioneering studies… Those teaching feminist courses will find the books invaluable as a resource for students.’ C.S. Rodd, Expository Times.
