Great Women of the Bible: In Art and Literature

This is a condensed, lower cost edition of an earlier work (1994), making it more accessible to a new audience. It focuses on 15 biblical characters, including Eve and Lilith, Sarah and Hagar, Tamar, Ruth and Naomi, Abigail, Esther, and Mary and Martha. The book presents not only their stories, but also more than 200 art-historical images of them. It contains discussions of their post-biblical legacies and includes commentary by the late theologian Dorothee Soelle. It serves as an ideal gift book.
