Leah, Rachel, Sarah, Rebeccah, Jezebel...the names of these Biblical women have been familiar to us since childhood. In this remarkable book, scholar Naomi Rosenblatt injects new life into these characters, retelling their stories in loving detail, and examining their relevance. Through her lens, we revisit these women-and their men-and view them with a new understanding, marveling at the very modern dilemmas and problems they confront and explore. As Rosenblatt shows, these are powerful women who work everyday miracles in a patriarchal world-women who risk everything to give birth, to win their husbands' love, and to ensure the survival of the human race. Each one of their stories will highlight a specific element of the male-female relationship-from the uninhibited lovers of the "The Song of Songs" to the mature partners Abraham and Sarah. In this powerful blend of history, psychology, and storytelling, women will recognize their own struggles to love, to mother, and to work their way through a complicated and dangerous world.
