Comments

In a Christian Century article (Sept. 5-12, 1990), this author wrote: "The development of a feminist reconstructive-historical model as well as of a critical hermeneutics for liberation would not have been possible without the theoretical contributions of feminist historians, literary critics and political philosophers. Yet feminist scholarship, despite the increase of feminist theory in all academic disciplines in the past decade, continues to be marginalized under the heading 'woman' as peripheral to biblical and theological discourse."

In the book under review, she writes: "If we were to believe that historiography objectively mirrored historical reality, then we would be forced to conclude that women and *other nonpersons* [my emphasis] have seldom acted as historical agents or contributed to our common history." (p. 82)

The above should: a) give you more than an inkling of the direction the author's thinking will lead; and b) not so subtly suggest that this book is aimed at the academic-and-seminary audience rather than the casual reader.

"The title of this book refers to the Gospel story of the foreign woman from Syro-Phoenicia who interrupts Jesus' retreat and enters into a theological argument for the sake of her daughter. She represents the biblical-theological voice of women, which has been excluded, repressed, or marginalized in Christian discourse." (p. 11)

The purpose of the book, in the author's perspective, is to "seek to articulate a critical feminist interpretation on feminist political terms." (p. 7) The points that she makes are cogent, well-documented, and provocative for the well-grounded reader.

Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza (born 1938) is a leading "feminist theologian" (who identifies herself as a Catholic). She is currently a Professor of Divinity at Harvard Divinity School. She was the first woman elected as president of the Society of Biblical Literature. (In her earlier 1983 book, In Memory of Her: A Feminist Theological Reconstruction of Christian Origins, she called attention to "women's leadership in early Christianity." She has also written Jesus: Miriam?s Child, Sophia's Prophet: Critical Issues in Feminist Christology,Bread Not Stone: The Challenge of Feminist Biblical Interpretation, etc.)

She wrote in the Introduction to this 1992 book, "The present volume not only seeks to clarify and advance my previous arguments for a critical feminist interpretation for liberation... My goal is... to theorize such an interpretation within the hermeneutical-rhetorical space created by feminist theory... I seek... a feminist counter-public-sphere from which a feminist biblical rhetoric can speak."

She notes that she is not attempting to persuade women to remain members of biblical religions, nor even arguing that they should read the Bible; "Rather, I seek to work out a process and method for a feminist political reading that can empower women ... to read 'against the grain' of its patriarchal rhetoric." (Pg. 7)

She argues that modern biblical scholars must include "the ethical consequences and political functions of biblical texts and scholarly discourses in their historical as well as contemporary sociopolitical contexts." (Pg. 46-47) Later, she asserts that a critical feminist theological hermeneutics is necessary because of the historical function of biblical-theological authority claims in "sociopolitical struggles for emancipation." (Pg. 137) A Christian feminist apologetics asserts that the Bible not only does not prohibit, but rather authorizes "the equal rights and liberation of women." (Pg. 144)

Schussler-Fiorenza's work is another challenging and thought-provoking one, and should be read in conjunction with her 'Bread, Not Stone.'
