Von der Wurzel getragen
Since 1986 feminist theologians in Germany have been engaged in public discussion of anti-Judaism. The feminist approach to the Bible is right at the centre of this discussion. The analysis of “anti-Jewish” tendencies in both Testaments is notoriously difficult. In the case of texts which are particularly uncomfortable for women, it is even more difficult to make progress.
Thirteen leading feminist Christian exegetes writing in German take up various themes for discussion (law, violence, impurity etc.), define the problem of anti-Judaism particular to each of these themes, situate it in the history of investigation and examine a particular text, looking for ways of overcoming an anti-Jewish interpretation without underplaying the genuine problems of the text.
The book is for all those interested in feminism, both women and men, and those engaged in Jewish/Christian dialogue, and is suitable for use as a textbook.
