This feminist classic explores the ways in which women can read the Christian Bible with full understanding of both its oppressive and its liberating functions. In the substantial new Afterword to this edition, Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza situates Bread Not Stone in relation to mainstream Biblical scholarship, Catholic and Protestant theologies, liberation theologies, and nineteenth-century feminist writings on the Bible.
“Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza stands among the most articulate and respected theologians who have challenged the silence and marginality that have characterized the great majority of Christian women for nearly 2.000 years.” —Elaine H. Pagels The New York Times Book Review“Schussler Fiorenza has provided the feminist reader a valuable new and redemptive way to read the received Bible.” —Los Angeles Times
