Women have been thoughtful readers and interpreters of scripture throughout the ages, yet the standard history of biblical interpretation includes few womens voices. To introduce readers to this untapped source for the history of biblical interpretation, this volume analyzes forgotten works from the nineteenth century written by womenincluding Christina Rossetti, Florence Nightingale, and Harriet Beecher Stowe, among othersfrom various faith backgrounds, countries, and social classes engaging contemporary biblical scholarship. Due to their exclusion from the academy, womens interpretive writings addressed primarily a nonscholarly audience and were written in a variety of genres: novels and poetry, catechisms, manuals for Bible study, and commentaries on the books of the Bible. To recover these nineteenth-century women interpreters of the Bible, each essay in this volume locates a female author in her historical, ecclesiastical, and interpretive context, focusing on particular biblical passages to clarify an authors contributions as well as to explore how her reading of the text was shaped by her experience as a woman.The contributors are Amanda Benckhuysen, Elizabeth Davis, Christiana de Groot, Rebecca G. S. Idestrom, Donna Kerfoot, Bernon P. Lee, Marion Taylor, Heather Weir, and Lissa M. Wray Beal.

The history of women interpreters of the Bible is a neglected area of study. Marion Taylor presents a one-volume reference tool that introduces readers to a wide array of women interpreters of the Bible from the entire history of Christianity. Her research has implications for understanding biblical interpretation--especially the history of interpretation--and influencing contemporary study of women and the Bible. Contributions by 130 top scholars introduce foremothers of the faith who address issues of interpretation that continue to be relevant to faith communities today, such as women's roles in the church and synagogue and the idea of religious feminism. Women's interpretations also raise awareness about differences in the ways women and men may read the Scriptures in light of differences in their life experiences. This handbook will prove useful to ministers as well as to students of the Bible, who will be inspired, provoked, and challenged by the women introduced here. The volume will also provide a foundation for further detailed research and analysis. Interpreters include Elizabeth Rice Achtemeier, Saint Birgitta of Sweden, Catherine Mumford Booth, Anne Bradstreet, Catherine of Siena, Clare of Assisi, Egeria, Elizabeth I, Hildegard, Julian of Norwich, Thérèse of Lisieux, Marcella, Henrietta C. Mears, Florence Nightingale, Phoebe Palmer, Faltonia Betitia Proba, Pandita Ramabai, Christina Georgina Rossetti, Dorothy Leigh Sayers, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Harriet Beecher Stowe, St. Teresa of Avila, Sojourner Truth, and Susanna Wesley.

The New Interpreter's Bible Index (NIB Index) is the definitive reference guide to the major subjects, names, and places discussed in the New Interpreter's Bible: A Commentary in Twelve Volumes (NIB). The NIB Index continues the NIB tradition of providing the best in contemporary biblical scholarship for the service of the church, through the enhancement of preaching, teaching, and the study of the Scriptures. The design of the NIB Index, like that of the NIB, was shaped by two controlling principles: (1) form serves function, and (2) maximum ease of use. The NIB Index allows fast and easy access to all twelve volumes of the NIB, resulting in optimum use of the commentary. Now the reader can search for and find references to and in-depth discussions on a wide variety of topics, including the NIB's visual aids as well as its text. Focusing on those entries that address a topic substantially and advance discussion significantly for the reader's needs produced the following indexes: · Subjects and Themes · Ancient Literature · Persons in the Bible · Persons Outside the Bible · Places in the Bible · Places Outside the Bible · Biblical Languages: Hebrew and Greek · Lists of Maps, Charts, Illustrations, and Abbreviations · Excursuses (further expositions of biblical topics) · Reference Lists from the Bible (for example, prayers in the Bible and names of women in the Bible). Arrangement of the indexed terms is appropriate for students, teachers, and preachers of the Scriptures. For example: Main Headings that are relevant to the interests of the reader Cross-References to guide the reader to related areas of interest Format that is easy to read with clear, large type Accuracy in page references Scope that encompasses from names, places, and themes, to Greek and Hebrew words with their translations.~
