Summary

There are few women in the Bible who have similar standing to their more famous male counterparts. This dismal state of affairs mirrors the position of women generally in Western society over the last two thousand years. John Baldock is at pains to rescue the reputation of women in the Bible, revealing that they were once on an equal footing with men – even that women were once personified as wisdom. Packed with tales of true love, incest, adultery, exploitation and abuse by men, this book is essential reading for anyone interested in how women have been represented through the ages.
