Hagith Sivan challenges the traditional reading of the Ten Commandments as a word of God to men. It explores the Commandments in both a legal and narrative contexts, bringing to bear methods of mainstream and feminist biblical scholarship. Between Woman, Man and God argues that there can be neither full understanding nor a meaningful reading of this central document without a thorough examination of its relevance to women on the one hand, and of the relevance of illustrative stories featuring women on the other hand. This is volume 4 in the Bible in the 21st Century series and volume 401 in the Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement series.
