Sarah, the wife of Abraham and the mother of Isaac in Genesis, is a central biblical character because of her role in the establishment of the people later called Israel. In recent years the image of Sarah has not fared well in scholarship where she is depicted as petty, indulgent, self-absorbed, and the oppressor of Hagar. This study examines Sarah and her role in Genesis to understand how women function in the biblical text, how the biblical writers constructed women's roles, and how this impacts a modern reading of the Hebrew Bible.

Industry Reviews

'In just over 120 pages this is quite a tour de force, but the author manages to keep her readers' attention through clearly structured chapters which ultimately invite us to take another look at those familiar stories ourselves.'

'This is a small and relatively specialized book, but it is an important contribution to feminist hermeneutics and to biblical scholarship in general.'
