Evangelical Engagements with Feminist Old Testament Hermeneutics
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Anyone who thinks that an 'evangelical feminist' is an impossibility--and especially an evangelical feminist who affirms the importance of the Old Testament--will need to engage with these thoughtful essays. Taking seriously the twin challenges of biblical authority and contemporary feminism, these essays not only chart a way through contested texts with clarity, they also model a way ahead for evangelical feminism that is truly inclusive."

"Tamar's Tears is a stimulating and engaging collection of essays, which hits all the hot-button OT passages for both feminist and evangelical hermeneutics. The commitment to engage rather than combat is not only refreshing but necessary at a time when many evangelicals are looking for more compelling paradigms for gender relations. This book moves the conversation forward."

"Tamar's Tears provides excellent examples of interacting with, learning from, and critiquing differing positions. Readers will find consistently good scholarship, integrity, and a love for and trust in the Bible as God's Word. No reader, whatever their starting perspective, will agree, or for that matter disagree, with everything here, but all will be stimulated and challenged to look again and think again about what the Bible (and feminist theology) actually says."
