Listen to Her Voice

Women of the Hebrew Bible

by Miki Raver

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Listen to Her Voice, resurrects the vividly dramatic stories of eighteen women of the Hebrew Bible. Illustrated with biblical masterpieces by Rubens, Raphael, Corot, Tintoretto, and other artists, this is an ode to the resilience and beauty of our foremothers.
Description
Richly illustrated by art masterpieces, Listen to Her Voice explores the role of women and the presence of the Feminine Divine in the Hebrew Bible. In the text, and through Midrashic interpretation, Miki reveals evidence of the continuous presence of the feminine half of the Holy One, suppressed and hidden through the ages. In rediscovering the omnipresence of the Feminine Divine, Raver illuminates a dimension of the Bible that the patriarchal language of past millennia obscured and lost, to all of our cost. This triumphant reassertion of the One, masculine and feminine, brings new meaning to familiar stories and adds potent resonance to names that have lived through the ages. In the stories of Eve, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, Leah and the other foremothers, we grasp how the DNA and the spiritual path of Judaism was shaped by women.
