“Poet and biblical scholar Elisabeth Greene has done the nearly impossible in her portrayals of women in scripture, virtually bringing them alive and letting us hear their unique voices by skillfully turning her scholarship into beautiful poetry.” — Christian Feminism Today
“In this accessible collection, Greene gives voices to women in the Bible who have been silenced for too long. Greene’s well-informed poems bear witness to the ways women have contributed to God’s grand story, while also challenging readers to see the Bible in all its complexities. Reading these poems has deepened my appreciation for scripture and for the women whose lives are inscribed there.” –Melanie Springer Mock, Professor, George Fox University
“Greene simultaneously upholds the importance of the scriptural stories in continuing to offer meaning to spiritual seekers today, as well as a willingness to question, dig deep, seek after and find God, and grow in one’s faith through tenacity, hope, creativity, birth, prophecy, grace, wisdom, and friendship.” — Cherice Bock
- Recent poetry appears in the Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion and the anthology District Lines IV.
