The women of Genesis - Eve, Sarah, Hagar, Rebekah, Leah, and Rachel - intrigued and informed the lives of nineteenth-century women. These women read the biblical stories for themselves and looked for ways to expand, reinforce, or challenge the traditional understanding of women's lives. They communicated their readings of Genesis using diverse genres ranging from poetry to commentary.

Reviews

This remarkable volume not only fills a painful lacuna in the history of biblical interpretation, but it opens up a new field within the discipline by recovering hundreds of forgotten female voices. I am confident that this volume will serve as an important catalyst to subsequent generations who will be stimulated to pursue a gripping subject matter still largely unexplored. Brevard S. Childs, Sterling Professor of Divinity Emeritus, Yale University An invaluable collection of rare primary sources. Taylor and Weir's introductions to the authors and summarizing analyses enhance the significance of this book for the history of biblical interpretation, women's studies, and nineteenth century cultural history. Katharine Doob Sakenfeld, Eisenberger Professor of Old Testament, Princeton Theological Seminary It is hard to imagine that anyone could discover a genuinely fresh approach to modern biblical interpretation, yet Taylor and Weir have done just that. At the same time, they offer new insight into the life, learning, and thinking of nineteenth-century women, both Jews and Christians. Their careful work will benefit scholars and students of modern history, biblical studies, and women's studies. Ellen Davis, Duke Divinity School This is at once an exciting book to plunge into and a treasure-trove to be explored at leisure. The result of prodigious research and meticulous attention to detail, the book also succeeds in being highly accessible and delightfully engaging. Taylor and Weir induct us sympathetically into the various social worlds of the women and their readers and help us to appreciate the way writers, readers, and historical context are bound together, so that interpreting the Bible is seen to be a living process. This remarkable book is suited to a wide audience and will be a great resource for college or seminary courses. David M. Gunn, Texas Christian University
