A collection of epistles, each written from the point of view of one of the women from The Bible, as if she had a contemporary feminist consciousness. For example, Eve does not accept blame for choosing the apple, for choosing knowledge over obedience. And you can imagine what Noah's wife had to say about his grand idea.

Other women present are Lilith, Abel, Cain's wife, Noah's wife, Hagar, Zipporah, 'the certain woman', Delilah, Eshta, Ruth, the Queen of Sheba, Vashti, Judith, Mary the mother of God, Mary of Bethany, Mary Magdalen, Thecla, and Satan.

Feminist theology. New audition monologues.

"In this book the voices and personalities of women such as Noah's wife, Mary of Bethany, Zipporah, and Vashti are reimagined in an exciting and empowering way. ... As in her other works, Wind uses historical people, events, and understandings to build a truly wonderful source of feminist fiction. In addition to being an extremely enjoyable and thought provoking read, the monologues can also be used for audition and performance pieces. ..." Katie M. Deaver, feminismandreligion.com
