From the publisher: "As the one work that has held moral and religious sway over the Judeo-Christian tradition for thousands of years, the Bible is unsurpassed in world literature. This book explores the Bible from womans' points of view, with 28 interpretations.

"By turns witty, erudite, probingly serious and sparklingly irreverent, these essays refresh our readings of the Bible, and deepen our vision of foundational feminist figures. A wonderfully thought-provoking and readable collection."EVA HOFFMANAuthor of EXIT INTO HISTORYThis is the first collection of essays in which women read and respond to the Bible out of pleasure and curiosity--reclaiming the Bible for women and showing readers that the Bible is a source we can return to again and again.

The essays collect here showed me, a man, the feminine perspective... enlightening, to say the least.

Some of them addressed things I had never even put thought into... others showed me familiar ideas from a different viewpoint. one or two I actually disliked, but I am a harsh critic. Two of them, Job as a clown, and 'Our View of a Good God', i consider to be GOLD, and worth the cost only for those two...

i highly recommend this book, for yourself, or as a gift for a friend...

I'm having trouble getting through this book. Actually, I'm not sure I will ever finish it. I'm having trouble relating to anything in it.

This book was chosen as a selection for our church book club, and was looked forward to as the mother of one of our members had loved it.

Out of ten members, only one or two could even finish it. We did not think that the quality of the essays was very good, which surprised us. We are a pretty literate group, and read a wide range of books, but this struck the great majority of us as something that might be better read by a college class on religion or womens' studies, but not something for the casual reader.
Just too dry and academic in feel.

Throughout history, religion has been man's domain: written by and for him alone. Christianity and Judaism are just two more example of male-centered religious theory. Right? Maybe. But "Out of the Garden: Women Writers on the Bible" is a startling wake-up call, and it is a powerful voice for those who feel that women (as well as the feminist movement) can find their own places within the Bible. The combination of essays provided here are strongly convincing in the argument that they present: women are important figures in the Bible, and it was written with them in mind, too. An important factor in the book is that its essays are written by women with a wide diversity of religious backgrounds, from many sects of Protestanism, to Catholicism, to Judaism. This is a powerful message of unity for women, and for religion. Many of the essays shine as personal examples of the Bible touching women's lives. Patricia J. William's personal essay was especially moving, because she tied in her own life experience with a Bible story; specifically, that of the adoption of Moses. If women can relate the Bible and the Christian and Jewish religions to their own lives, is this not important evidence in itself that they are not excluded in these theories' teachings and reachings? The only problem with this book is its tendency to make wild interpretations of Christianity and Judaism, and sometimes it is questionable whether more than the one author writing the essay could ever see a feminist message in a particular passage or story. However, this does not take away from the book's resounding message, that women should not be discouraged from claiming Christianity and Judaism as their own as men have done since its conception. "Out of the Garden" is an important book to add to any feminist theology collection, or to read in order to find out just how the Christianity of men can be looked at from the perspective of many different women.
Thought-provoking use of Bible stories to explain women's motives in daily life
