Item Description...
Overview
In a changing society, Christians and Jews have looked to the Bible for values and models. But the Hebrew Bible does not offer one single model of family behavior and relationships. This volume explores positive and negative aspects of family life in ancient Israel as portrayed in the Bible. Rashkow examines the relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, and siblings, looking at the variety of conflicts that inevitably emerge: incest, rape, abuse, mureder, and hatred.

Publishers Description
In a changing society, Christians and Jews have looked to the Bible to find values and models. But the Hebrew Bible does not offer just a single model for family behavior or relationships. This volume explores the positive and negative aspects of family life in ancient Israel as portrayed in the Bible. Rashkow examines the relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, and siblings, looking at the variety of conflicts that emerged: incest, rape, abuse, murder, and hatred. Ultimately, Rashkow's analysis provides a reflection on family, which is given texture and depth through her use of psychoanalysis and literary theory. This text traces the influence of the biblical images on later Western literature and society and provides comparative discussions of other ancient Near Eastern literatures. Also useful as a textbook for courses in Hebrew Bible, feminist studies, and psychological interpretations of the Bible.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Taboo or not Taboo  Feb 3, 2007
After reading and sometimes rereading Ms. Rashkow's arguments on the Hebrew Bible and sexuality within the family, I can not help but come to the conclusion that I was only reading her oppinion. At many points within her argument it was very subjective and seemed as if it was not well supported and it left a lot of questions unanswered.
She did, however, write the text in a very easy to read manner; she incoperated interesting analogies and easy to understand examples to try and help support her view points.
 
I don't think this is worth your time.  Apr 18, 2003
I have a B.A. in religion and am currently pursuing a M.A. in counsoling psychology.

Ms. Rashkow uses psychoanalytic method to discuss sexuality in the Hebrew Bible. I'm not a fan of the psychoanalytic school because I think interpretation of symbols is almost always very subjective, and is very rarely presented that way.

This book is no exception. Ms. Rashkow makes several assertions that don't make sense to me (not uncommon), but does not continue on to defend these assertions in a sensical manner (that is a bit uncommon).

On the plus side, the historical information presented is often very interesting, and is difficult to find elsewhere. And Ms. Rashkow is at time quite funny and does a good job of not taking herself or her sunject matter to seriously.

Bottom line; I learned a lot about Ms. Rashkow's subjective psychoanalytic interpretations of the hebrew bible, and less than I would have like about the facts of human sexuality from that time period.

Dissapointing.

 
Positive & negative aspects of family life in ancient Israel  Feb 14, 2001
The Hebrew Bible offers diverse models for family behavior and relationships. Taboo Or Not Taboo: Sexuality And Family In The Hebrew Bible explores the positive and negative aspects of family life in ancient Israel, particularly the relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, as well as siblings. Professor of Judaic Studies, Women's Studies, and Comparative Literature at the State University of new York, Stony Brook, Ilona Rashkow surveys the variety of conflicts that emerge in the familial Biblical accounts, including rape, incest, abuse, hatred, and murder. Her cogent, scholarly analysis provides a reflection on family, which given texture and depth through her use of psychoanalysis and literary theory result in fascinating, informative, thought-provoking, and occasionally controversial reading.
