A Significant Milestone in the History of Feminism and the Study of Scripture. The Wisdom Commentary series is the first scholarly collaboration to offer detailed feminist interpretation of every book of the Bible. The fifty-eight volume collection makes the best of current feminist biblical scholarship available in an accessible format to aid preachers and teachers in their advancement toward God’s vision of dignity, equality, and justice for all.

The aim of this commentary is to provide feminist interpretation of every section of the Bible, in serious, scholarly engagement with the whole text from a feminist perspective. A central concern is how the text is heard and understood by men and women today. At the same time, this commentary aims to be faithful to the ancient text.

Key Features

  • Includes feminist biblical interpretation by both pioneers in the field and the younger generation of scholars
  • Provides diverse voices of scholars offering other perspectives from that of the main author
  • “Translation Matters” raise questions about problematic translations

    In the interest of full disclosure, since 1974 I have been a Catholic priest. I went through the same degree program as Barbara Reid -- the Biblical Studies Degree at the Catholic University of America. She went through a few years before I received my degree in 1995. Doctor Reid is as a highly respected biblical scholar. She has served as president of the Catholic Biblical Association of America (CBA), an honor that only few Catholic biblical scholars can claim. Several years ago she led a panel discussion at the annual meeting of the CBA on the Wisdom Commentary series. It was well received by the membership. While there have been several one-volume commentaries on the Bible from a feminist perspective, the Wisdom Commentary is the FIRST "full-length" (i.e., multi-volume) commentary on the Bible from that perspective. Such a commentary would have been impossible as recently as 25 or 30 years ago. The fact that this commentary is now being published is evidence of the progress that feminists (including men! -- not all feminists are women) have made in recent decades. I own "hard copy" of some of these volumes, and am extremely pleased to see that electronic editions are now coming out in Logos. I highly recommend this commentary. (Rev.) Patrick J. Madden, Ph.D.
