Incredibly perceptive and fascinating. Lerner's book intelligently and clearly examines images of the first Biblical woman, ranging from the Torah itself to rabbinic midrash to modern interpretations. Her cogent analysis includes a discussion of the multiple creation stories in Genesis -- which counter the traditional interpretation of Eve being created from Adam, and therefore inferior -- and delves into the original Hebrew to show where translations are either incorrect or don't convey all the possible meanings. (You don't need to understand Hebrew yourself, though knowing the Hebrew alphabet is helpful, if only to be able to pick out specific words in the verses she quotes.) If you ever have to go up against someone who justifies misogyny with references to Eve the Temptress, this is the book to have at your side. ( )
