Still Waters Run Deep investigates two aspects missing or underdeveloped in the study of women in biblical narratives. This book focuses on the Biblical representation of women in oral tradition and then literature and art. The authors examine the variety of ways Judaism, Christianity, and Islam portray female biblical characters. They accentuate the importance of female images in the oral tradition from which the biblical representations arose. Then, the authors present many images and possibilities for interpretation regarding the impact of women on their cultures and religions. Their examination allows the reader to see the depth of meaning in the art and literature of another time and culture, providing new insight into a little-explored field.
