Children of Eve
"Gale Yee has written a book that significantly advances our critical thinking about the ways in which ideology permeates scripture The power of her analysis is that she offers a rare combination of grounded, well-articulated critical theory alongside a careful, attentive reading of texts…a rare combination in current discussions! Her book focuses on "how the biblical text legitimates such oppressive struggles in our time" concerning gender exploitation The consequence of such a legitimization is all around us in social fallout Yee goes behind current evidence of such oppressive struggles to consider the power of textual legitimization Her book is compelling in requiring our steadfast rethinking on such issues."
