Abstract:

MacHaffie, author of Her Story (LJ 8/86), collects 74 sources about women from the Bible, Mishnah, early church, through medieval, Reformation, and modern periods, to contemporary sources (Protestant, Catholic, post-Christian). The selections are well chosen and briefly introduced. This book can be a companion to Her Story, but it also stands well on its own as a good, solid introduction to the historical and contemporary treatment of women, by male as well as female writers, who express both feminist and patriarchal views in the Christian tradition. The scope is broad but American sources are especially prominent.
