Endorsements & Reviews-

"Why haven't we North American biblical scholars done such a systematic study of the words for oppression in the Bible? If the answer is that we who possess the critical skills are not ourselves oppressed or identified with communities of the oppressed, then it becomes imperative that we listen all the more carefully to these voices from the South."
-- Walter Wink, Professor Emeritus of Biblical Interpretation, Auburn Theological Seminary,
New York

"This book is a welcome addition to a growing body of evidence that the Bible is a book about social justice for the oppressed of the land and that this indeed is the good news."
-- Marie Augusta Neal, SND de Namur, author of A Socio-Theology of Letting Go

"Elsa Tamez's book attracts our attention, not only for wrestling with a major biblical theme but also for keeping us in continuous contact with the text of the Bible."
-- Carroll Stuhlmueller, CP, general editor of The Collegeville Pastoral Dictionary of Biblical Theology

"A careful and creative interdisciplinary study in biblical theology, Old Testament, and social ethics. Elsa Tamez's work has contributed to the church in Latin America and is now available as a readable, important resource for the English-speaking church."
-- Jane Cary Peck and Carole Fontaine, Andover Newton Theological School

"Writing from a perspective of those oppressed by poverty and sexism, Elsa Tamez has brought us a wealth of analysis of the biblical understanding of oppression."
-- Letty M. Russell, Professor Emeritus, Yale Divinity School
