    Womanist Midrash Kindle ´ Paperback womanist kindle, midrash epub, Womanist Midrash MOBII am afraid to write a review for this book simply because I fear no words I put together will do it justice On every page this book blew my mind or melted my heart I learned so much from this book While Gafney is a Hebrew and Bible scholar and incredibly knowledgeable in translation and interpretation she never makes the reader feel like they can not understand the text as well Each time she

    Womanist Midrash Kindle ´ Paperback womanist kindle, midrash epub, Womanist Midrash MOBIHow to begin Forget ministry I'm just going to head down the road to Fort Worth take all of her classes and become a Hebrew Bible scholar Well not really But it's tempting I originally picked this up because I had heard such great things from others who I admire I am always on board to read commentaries on women in the Hebrew Bible; it was one of my favorite things to explore in undergrad Further I looked through my shelves and realized I had no works of theology or biblical scholarship written by women of color I had a few books about Christian life and faith

    Womanist Midrash Kindle ´ Paperback womanist kindle, midrash epub, Womanist Midrash MOBIDr Gafney's Womanist Midrash is an informative and insightful look at the women in the texts of the Hebrew Bible Dr Gafney's aim is to acknowledge by name as often as possible the women in around and behind the text This was extremely helpful to me because I have been trained to read the Scriptures with from an androcentric viewpoint where the women are included in the text as props for the actions of the dominant men Dr Gafney's book aims to humanize those women in the ey

    Womanist Midrash Kindle ´ Paperback womanist kindle, midrash epub, Womanist Midrash MOBII recently had the pleasure of hearing Dr Gafney speak at a conference At one point she stated “Sometimes the problem with the interpretation of the text is the text itself” That statement works reasonably well as a summary statement for this book This book

    Womanist Midrash Kindle ´ Paperback womanist kindle, midrash epub, Womanist Midrash MOBII am a life long student of scripture raised in a tradition that held scripture in high regard I’m trained in reading Biblical Hebrew and Greek I’m a pastor with nearly 25 years full time vocational experience It’s easy for me to think that I’ve “seen it all” when it comes to studying the text Turns out this perception is largely the result of my own limited perspective and cultural privilege Dr Gafney changed the way that I read scripture enabling me to see things in the text that I had overlooked or been unable to see previously The chapter on Hagar is simply stunning and deeply impacted how I read Abraham
