Biblical Studies from a Christian Feminist Perspective
by Bernice Santor
In Some Women Amazed Us, Bernice Santor focuses on 12 sessions with named and unnamed Biblical women: Eve, Huldah, Esther, Abigail, Ruth, Isaiah II, Mary the Mother of Jesus, Anna, Martha, Mary Magdalene, the Woman at the Well, and Prisca. Each session features: an introduction; an exegesis through literary form, word study and historical context; questions for the interpretation of the text; application for today; creative activities; and a closing ritual. The book also includes coloured prints of five quilts of Biblical women and accompanying monologues, and a bibliography for further reading.
Bernice is an experienced Bible study leader, quilter, social activist and grandmother who lives in Grand Bend, Ontario. She holds a Master of Theological Studies degree from Huron University College at the University of Western Ontario in London.
“The Bible is a collection of stories and accounts rich with insight into the human-divine condition. It deserves to be studied seriously using all the tools available. It is my hope that this book will provide the necessary challenge to take the participants on a spiritual journey that will be both rewarding and insightful.”
