  1. 4.5 Stars Happy Women s History Month King Solomon took 700 wives and 300 concubines Even stepping away from romantic fiction I still can t get away from these manwhores But, putting my romance reading commentary aside for a moment, I m going to organize this review much like I did other women s history texts I ve reviewed see Who Cooked the Last Supper The Women s History of the World and A History of Women in America I m also going to rely heavily on quotes from the women of the revising comm [...]


  2. This book is free on Really fascinating to read such a bold piece of feminist work from the 1800 s ECS had some major moxie to take such a taboo position in those times Being raised in patriarchal religious tradition myself, I was struck by how relevant these concerns still are today The introductory portion is short, but my favorite I m not interested in the heavy Bible Study aspect of this book But since the Bible was used as a source of authority by which to oppress women, I appreciate the ef [...]


  3. When I first came upon this book, I gasped The title, The Woman s Bible A Classic Feminist Perspective Then the name of the author Elizabeth Cady Stanton.HELL YES Before even reading it, I dare say I automatically confirmed it s awesomeness without even reading it I was right In the foreword of the book, you will find the history of the making of this book Elizabeth Cady Stanton and bunch of other women part of the committee joined together to comment about the bible A lot of women didn t do it [...]


  4. Oooh, ECS has some dodgy views going on.Book looks like fun, though Anything that gets you ostracised from the feminist movement for being too progressive She and Anne Bronte should form a club The most interesting thing about this book is the appendix, which contains letters of response from ladies in the US and UK, almost all of which are fascinating.Review to follow.


  5. This is such an interesting and eye opening look at the Bible Elizabeth Cady Stanton 1815 1902 , an American social activist, abolitionist, wife, mother, and feminist, wrote in 1895 this disturbingly accurate view of the ongoing misogyny in the Bible Stanton begins with the obvious The bible teaches that woman brought sin and death into the world, that she precipitated the fall of the race Marriage for her was to be a condition of bondage, maternity a period of suffering and anguish, and in sil [...]


  6. In a search for a bible for my kindle I was curious to find The Woman s Bible by Elizabeth Cady Stanton So, I figured I would give it a glance over, which I did this morning Between the preface and the first few pages, I was aghast from claims that you can take apart the bible and believe which parts you choose Claims that not only did the trinity of the Godhead contain a Heavenly Father, but also a heavenly mother And that the bible was construed from the very beginning to oppress women and mak [...]


  7. This is interesting in documenting how far Elizabeth Cady Stanton s questioning ways took her from conventional thought, and how her path created rifts in the women s movement It is also interesting in documenting how the Higher Criticism was perceived and used by laypeople Stanton takes no prisoners She wields a broadly sarcastic sword when she attacks the subjegation of women in old and new testaments, and the roles that women fill in biblical stories She has plenty of very funny acid comments [...]


  8. This book of comentary SHOULD have been a great opportunity to correct injustices practiced by the churches of Stanton s time But instead of using the Bible to prove the false teachings of prominent ministers who claimed that their own prejudices against women were biblically based when in fact were a result of their own grasp for power , Elizabeth Cady Stanton falls directly into their trap Her commentary s goal is to PROVE that the Bible and Christianity is anti woman In her remarkably sexist, [...]


  9. Picked this up as it free as an e book thinking that while it will be interesting it won t be that relevent any , oh how very wrong I was While religion may not play as big as a role in daily life compared to what it used, it s influences are still very much alive and well and many of the attitudes towards women at least partially stem from the bible and its interpretation And this is exactly what Stanton and her colleagues set out to illustrate, assess and try to change They did the first two b [...]


  10. If this had been the first greek and hebrew scripture commentary I d read, I probably would have gotten out of it As it is, the book is conversational and easy to get through Susan B Anthony may have been the better politician, Stanton remains my favorite feminist.Pg 64 As the Bible is placed in the hands of children and uneducated men and women to point them the way of salvation, the letter should have no doubtful meaning What should we think of guide posts on our highways, if we needed a symb [...]


  11. This is a fascinating look into what progressive women were thinking at the time Despite the commentary being from the late 1800s many of the viewpoints and insights still hold up today Should be required reading Loved it.


  12. Interesting The disheartening thing is how women and feminists seem to still be essentially fighting the same battles outlined here.



  13. Stanton and committee take verses in the bible, old and new testaments, that directly refer to women Greek and Hebrew scholars are responsible for translation from the original work, others are historians and put their talents to use there, and the last of the committee will be commentators This is a Women s look at some of the original text and how they should be interrupted by today s woman 1900 s In my opinion, these men and women, really knew their stuff It was quite interesting to see some [...]


  14. The book is a very argumentive about how women were subjected as mere servants versus strong individuals In my opinion it s feminist propaganda but it also summarized how important women truly were in the Bible So that s why I m giving it three stars.


  15. A Window into feminist herstoryI found The Woman s Bible to be profound and thought provoking Oh, how I wish I had read it 40 years sooner Better late than never Every young woman girl needs to read it.


  16. Stanton s classic work, The Woman s Bible, is one of the bravest and boldest acts I ve encountered When religion is your oppressor, debunk the religion She does so by contextualizing verses, exposing contradictions, and blatantly rejecting readings of the text that are unethical at best, violently so, at worst This book needed to be written Holding blindly to a dogmatism that seeks to stifle the individual mind is dangerous and threatens us all That said, she gets pretty dogmatic in here A few o [...]


  17. Published in the late nineteenth century, THE WOMEN S BIBLE was an unbelievably progressive book for its time, and is still progressive for modern times Abrahamic religious denominations often purport patriarchal values, and base those principles on their religious texts In this work, Elizabeth Cady Stanton presents a critical, radical feminist critique of the books of the Christian Bible She was knowledgeable in Greek, and in history, and was able to offer viewpoints and rationale that were con [...]


  18. This has been on my shelf for so long I am not even sure when I got it or what list recommendation I found it on Having been written in the 1890 s, much of what was written was outdated Yet, it provided a very interesting view on society, specifically woman s rights, during that time I must admit, I skimmed much of the last 30 pages or so, because I was a little overwhelmed by all the names and storylines mentioned This is actually a compilation of writings from many authors, or the revising com [...]


  19. ECS was an incredibly brave woman for her time She and her cohort of commentators make insightful comments into the inherent sexism of the Bible and Christianity I think it s funny and sad that when you first learn about ECS and her counterparts in American history classes in high school, you never hear of this side of her all you learn about is her suffragist political work.Unfortunately things get a bit repetitive even allowing for the fact that the Bible itself is repetitive and it s understa [...]


  20. Awful One of the worst books I have ever read The following are sorely missing in this publication logic, research, knowledge of ancient texts, knowledge of ancient history, basic knowledge of Christianity, reasoning, etc The list goes on.Perhaps because it is so focused on Protestantism that it seems so theologically flawed to me, a Catholic, but some things are so basic it makes it extremely challenging to believe the author attended a seminary There are, at times, hints of anti Semitism as we [...]


  21. The Woman s Bible has been on my mental to read list since I first heard about it I am fascinated by the premise and the courage of the contributors to publish this document when they did I did enjoy certain sections, mostly from a history of feminist thought perspective, but I found the organization less than desirable The book is broken up biblical chapter by biblical chapter, rather than thematically This leads to repetition, and most aggrievedly, a lack of overall analysis on the representat [...]


  22. The women s bibleThe Women s Bible by Elizabeth Cady Stanton is an interesting take on the Bible It is worth reading I highly recommend this book.


  23. I found a lot of value in this, even though it was written so long ago you d think would have improved for women since then, alas I was relieved that Jesus, at least, was not judged anti woman that would indeed be hard to prove Elizabeth Cady Stanton was obviously an amazing person I must learn about her.


  24. Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her colleagues in feminism take apart the Bible book by book, illuminating passages that, as they say, retard the progress of women Some of these passages are still in question today A very bold work for its time.


  25. This is a collection of essays by many different authors Stanton takes the cake though She s brilliant Her take on the Bible stories is very interesting, especially in the context of the 1890s when it was written.


  26. God s Word is alive and the source for all my daily needs I will never finish this book until I meet my beloved Savior in Glory It tells me greatest truth known to man That God so loved the world You and Me that He gave His Only Begotten Son that we should not perish but have eternal life.


  27. It is really hard to sum up my feelings for this awesome book in a short review The translation is powerful, important, and critical for our spiritual well being This should be read as a devotional text, as well as critically It offers great wisdom for all, regardless of gender.


  28. Mrs Stanton isn t a Biblical scholar, and her disdain for Judaism occasionally verges on the anti Semitic, but she sure has a lot of great one liners Her associates commentaries are a bit insightful, if not as humorous.


  29. My honest opinion BS Even as a woman, this is nonsense Yes, women have been oppressed throughout the ages, biblical eras included, but what I remember reading of this is just unsound Eisegesis with an agenda Boo Bye.
