Item Description...
Overview
From the Publisher: Adultery, harlotry, independence, and power. Few today would say that these are equal. But to the male-dominated, male-documented world of ancient Israel and early Christianity, a woman who asserted herself was the equivalent of a prostitute. In a world where religious law severely limited women's opportunities, those who did use prostitution and adultery to find a form of freedom not readily available to most women were castigated for their actions. This new book from Gail Corrington examines the treatment some of these women recieved and illustrates how biblical texts often apply the term "adultery" to any independant female behavior....sexual or not.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Must Read  Mar 1, 2002
Corrington displays her talent in combining today's reality and the reality of yesteryear.

Its quite eye opening to reconsider the role of women as portrayed in the Bible.

I am surprised that this book has not achieved more prominence amoung todats woman or dare I say Feminists (In the true sense of the word).
