About this item

In order to examine the multifaceted experience of infertility in several narratives within the Hebrew Bible without a modern bias, De-Whyte compares women in a similar traditional culture, the Akan culture, which scholars have found similar to Hebrew culture. She covers (in)fertility in the ancient Near East and in the Akan culture; Sarah, Rebekah, and Rachel: beautiful and barren; infertility in the former prophets; Leah and Michal: estranged wives; Dinah and Princess Tamar: violated women; and Tamar and Naomi-Ruth: widows.
