Reviews - What do our customers think?
247 pages on John's Prologue  Apr 16, 2002
Alison Jasper's book analyzes interpretations of John's Prologue by the following: St. Augustine, Martin Luther, Hildergard von Bingen, Adrienne von Speyr, and Rudolf Bultmann. Each interpretation is shown to be clothed in patriarchy.

Jasper then analyzes the prologue from a feminist viewpoint using deconstructionist and structuralist methodology (strictly speaking, can deconstruction be called a method?).

Her own three readings of the text reflect the feminine in John's prologue - the shining garmet of the text.

I would only recommend this book if you are interested in the history of interpretation of the Fourth Gospel. Futhermore, beware, you probably should at least have a passing knowledge of intertexuality, Paul Ricoeur, and Julia Kristeva.

This book is definately for the specialist in Johannine feminist studies.
