Translated from the German by Martin Rumscheidt

The original German edition of Feminist Biblical Interpretation received high acclaim and widespread positive reviews in Europe. That groundbreaking reference tool for contextual biblical interpretation is here available in English for the first time. With contributions from more than sixty female scholars, this is the only one-volume feminist commentary on the entire Bible, including books that are relatively uncharted territory for feminist theology.


Luise Schottroff is Professor Emeritus of New Testament at the University of Kassel, Germany.

Marie-Theres Wacker is Professor for Old Testament and Gender Research in Theology at the University of Münster, Germany.



“There is no compendium like this: it contains no repetition of things already said a hundred times but, rather, to-the-point coherent feminist readings of biblical books, with clear emphases on issues relevant to feminist research and excellent bibliographic references to feminist output. This compendium is a ‘must have can’t work without’ book for scholars as well as all those interested in the Bible and feminism.” Kristin De Troyer, University of St Andrews
