This book looks at the stories of the Old Testament from the point of view of some of the women involved.
The women included are: Eve, Sarah, Hagar, Hannah, Bathsheba and the women of Exodus 1-4.
It is rare to find a book that considers the feelings of these women in such a straightforward way. There is no beating around the bush here, Trevor Dennis tells it the way it probably was. For example, he calls Sarah a 'tragic character' and explains why in great (but interesting!) detail. Abraham's mistreatment of her is brought to our attention in such a way that we understand them both better.
Every Christian woman and anyone interested in the place of women in the Old Testament should have this book on their bookshelf.

I gave my husband this book and haven't managed to get it back to read myself!
From the bits I managed to read, it looks thought provoking.
For a feminist and a Christian, as he is, it is very interesting indeed.
