Thinking about The Women

If you don’t know who I mean by The Women, refer to my “Books” page. I’ve done/am doing research on women who interpreted the Bible. The Women I’ve worked on lived in the 18th and 19th centuries. Tonight I’m leading a discussion on why listen to female biblical interpreters at a pub night. So I’m thinking about The Women.

I’m also thinking about the idea of a community of interpreters. I think that is the main reason we should read others who write about the Bible. We need to listen to the Bible in community, a community that extends through time and space. I don’t always do this very well, but reading The Women helps with the through time thing.

Who is in your community of interpretation?
