    PDF/EPUB Womanist Midrash PDF Ê ´ posthd.pro womanist kindle, midrash kindle, Womanist Midrash MOBII am afraid to write a review for this book simply because I fear no words I put together will do it justice On every page this book blew my mind or melted my heart I learned so much from this book While Gafney is a Hebrew and Bible scholar and incredibly knowledgeable in translation and interpretation she never makes the reader feel like they can not understand the text as well Each time she would define and explain the text in Hebrew it would open my eyes to a whole new world While the book is extensive in academic interpretation and information of the text my heart was touched than my mind Gafney's Midrash of the verses often left me in tears I was suddenly there in the text living feeling and breathing each word She would repeat the phrase When I use my sanctified imagination when she would begin her Midrash By the middl

    PDF/EPUB Womanist Midrash PDF Ê ´ posthd.pro womanist kindle, midrash kindle, Womanist Midrash MOBIDr Gafney's Womanist Midrash is an informative and insightful look at the women in the texts of the Hebrew Bible Dr Gafney's aim is to acknowledge by name as often as possible the women in around and behind the text This was extremely helpful to me because I have been trained to read the Scriptures with from an androcentric viewpoint where the women are included in the text as props for the actions of the dominant men Dr Gafney's book aims to humanize those women in the eyes of readersBecause this is a self acknowledged Midrash Dr Gafney makes interpretive choices Not all of her sanctified imagining a term used repeatedly throughout the book can be fully supported by the text but she goes to great pains to ensure that those interpretive choices are

    PDF/EPUB Womanist Midrash PDF Ê ´ posthd.pro womanist kindle, midrash kindle, Womanist Midrash MOBII recently had the pleasure of hearing Dr Gafney speak at a conference At one point she stated “Sometimes the problem with the interpretation of the text is the text itself” That statement works reasonably well as a summary statement for this book This book is an exercise in discomfort for a white American Christian man raised in the Evangelical tradition Dr Gafney does an amazing job of finding those people that are marginalized in the text and giving them a voice And many of those marginalized voices continue to be silenced or at least overlookedignored in traditional Evangelical interpretationsI am accustomed to authors explaining away and minimizing some of the

    PDF/EPUB Womanist Midrash PDF Ê ´ posthd.pro womanist kindle, midrash kindle, Womanist Midrash MOBIGafney writes commentary on the women mentioned in the Torah and the royal histories of Israel and Judah She writes from a womanist frame explicitly self consciously influenced by the the experience of African American women And she interprets in the tradition of midrash imaginative reading between the lines informed by scholarship and faith The strength of this eye opening work is the combination of Gafney's womanist lens and her familiarity with and respect for Jewish interpretive tradition While the book is consistently fascinating and helpful Gafney's reading of the David narratives through the story's women those dominated by David is was for me the most stunning
