Books of the Bible

On Easter, we note three books that look at the Bible from interesting perspectives.

Eve's Bible (St. Martin's Press) by Sarah Forth is a religious scholar's analysis of the depiction of women in the Hebrew and Christian Bibles, with careful attention to context.

Jesus: A Meditation on His Stories and His Relationships With Women (Tor/Forge) by Father Andrew Greeley is a look at the parables of Christ, with special attention to his attitudes toward women, by a bestselling popularizer of Catholic theology.

Young Jesus: Restoring the "Lost Years" of a Social Activist and Religious Dissident (Sterling) by Jean-Pierre Isbouts employs history, archaeology and modern political theory to examine the leadership of Jesus.
