Murphy examines Proverbs, Job, Ecclesiastes, Ecclesiasticus or Ben Sira, and Wisdom of Solomon in detail, examines other passages of scripture that are wisdom's echoes, and reflects on themes and meanings. Essential for academic, seminary, and large public libraries.'--Library Journal, 1990.

Like New. 
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1998 Houghton Mifflin. Very clean; unmarked; unread. Only light shelfwear. 256pp. Language: English. 'In the world that created the Bible, there were no female scholars and theologians, yet in the past four decades, owing to such stunning discoveries as the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi texts, as well as advances in historical understanding and the rise of feminism, a generation of scholars has found new ways to interpret the Scriptures and the societies that created them--exploring avenues traditionally ignored by male-dominated religious study. Surveying the new scholarship and the personalities of those who have created it, The Word According to Eve not only explores afresh the history of our religions but offers exciting new challenges to our sense of worship.'--from the publisher.
