Let the Daughters Live!
This study deals with the structure, coherence and composition of the stories of Exodus 1 and 2 with a view to contributing to the interpretation of biblical narrative in general.
In the first chapter the author introduces the method and analytical procedures employed. In the subsequent chapters the method is applied to the literary architecture of the stories in Exodus 1 and 2. The last chapter presents a sample of the exegesis as a practical demonstration of how the method described can be integrated into the interpretative procedure.
The approach presented in this volume provides an instructive introduction to newer techniques in interpretation. Though of special interest to feminist interpreters, it also speaks to a broad range of those who are engaged in modern types of exegesis.
