Write The First Customer Review

The first book-length attempt to map the attitude of the ancient rabbis to some of the most signficant feminine figures in the Old Testament, From Esther to Eve traces the biblical stories, their objectives and methods, and then discusses how these original intentions were altered--sometimes beyond recognition--when the women discussed in them were subjected to the unique exegetical technique of midrash.
