How to begin Forget ministry I m just going to head down the road to Fort Worth take all of her classes and become a Hebrew Bible scholar Well not really But it s tempting I originally picked this up because I had heard such great things from others who I admire I am always on board to read commentaries on women in the Hebrew Bible it was one of my favorite things to explore in undergrad Further I looked through my shelves and realized I had no works of theology or biblical scholarship written by women of color I had a few books about Christian life and faith and some on race relations but none that veered toward the academic side of study So glad to have changed that now Gafney s scholarship is INCREDIBLE Her writing and teaching is MASTERFUL I m sure she could put to shame anyone who challenged her knowledge and competence of scripture or her ability and her CALLING to teachpreach it SHAME I tell you I am just blown away Okay onto the actual book Goodness she does not shy away Yes Abraham is the father of our faith but he also sex trafficked his own sisterwife impregnated a woman against her will allowed for her abuse and then sent her and her son into the wilderness not great Yes Moses delivered the Israelites from slavery but he also calls for slaughter and genocide even though God does not demand it AND he he denies the daughters of Zelophehad their inheritance granted to them BY GOD RUDE Do not even get me STARTED on David Yes he is one of the few characters in the Old Testament who understood the importance of monotheism but that s pretty much the only good thing he s got going for him in my opinion I pray there is a special place in heaven for the women in his life who had to endure him These important figures in our faith were heroes in some ways and horrific villains in other ways They have two or three redeeming ualities or moments sure Patriarchy on the other hand has no redeeming ualities There is no right way If the most important characters in scripture whom God spoke with and commanded directly could not lead or rule over women without also subjecting them to grave injustice what makes anyone think patriarchy as a model for relationships and authority in the church bears good fruit In fact it bears a lot of bad fruit Scripture shows History shows The MeToo movement shows Let s leave patriarchy behind and love God and one another Amen Amen We can not go back and hold Abraham Moses David and others accountable for the crimes they committed against women but we can and should and must do so today Gafney also points out how patriarchy is in many ways responsible for pitting women against one another and and leads women to become perpetrators of crimes against one another This is womanist midrash not merely feminist Gafney points out how women in scripture betrayedabuseddisenfranchised other women and she reminds us how we have continued to do so throughout history She brings to light modern and ongoing conflicts which continue to reflect patterns of cruelty and exclusion between people and women of different racesnationsethnicities This book is not easy to read It is disturbing to me that consent which figures so essentially in our conversations about sex today seemingly had little or no importance to characters in the Hebrew Bible Does this mean consent did not matter to God It is awful to read women listed out with animals as though they are simply property Did God not care enough to correct this misconception when bestowing the law to Moses Or is this how God viewed women as well The section on forced impregnation was also especially troubling Are women no than wombs What provides readers hope and comfort is the voice Gafney grants to characters some named and some just imagined We know women were present even if they were not named We know they played essential roles even if they were not given a voice Midrash is a means through which to give them names stories and voices It grants us permission to use our sanctified imagination It reminds us that women matter and it s important to consider stories of scripture from their perspective In doing so we may praise them for their resilience curiosity cleverness their grit and grace We may critiue them for the part they play in perpetuating injustice We may be in solidarity with them and they may be in solidarity with us We may mourn those who did not survive the crimes committed against them We may be encouraged by those who did survive We may remember their names We may remember they too are children of God Okay this accidentally turned into a book report I m done now
