CHOICE Review

Tracing the reception history of Deborah, the prophet, judge, military leader, poet, wife (?) and mother (?) of Judges 4-5--from the 1st century to the 21st--this exhaustive study shows each generation mapping onto this biblical figure recurring questions about women's roles. These include whether women should have leadership roles in church and synagogue, society, or the military; and whether women's religious leadership is compatible with wifely and maternal duties. Schroeder (Trinity Lutheran Seminary and Capital Univ.) surveys an exceptional range of materials. These include patristic and rabbinic sources, sermons, academic feminist publications, novels and children's books, oratorios, and paintings, along with the expected appearances of Augustine; Aquinas; Hildegard of Bingen; Elizabeth Cady Stanton; the Mexican nun Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz (1648-95); Harriet Livermore (1788-1868), one of the first women to preach to Congress; Zilpha Elaw (1790-?), an African American Methodist preacher who risked her freedom to preach in slave-holding states; and journalist Ray Frank (1861-1948), considered to be the first Jewish woman to give an address from a US pulpit. Schroeder's concentration on the relationship between cultural contexts and interpretations appropriately eschews detailed exegesis of biblical material, but the footnotes and bibliography show readers where else to turn. --Amy-Jill Levine, Vanderbilt University
