Re-Imagining Eve and Adam
And Other Brief Essays
About the Book
From the Seattle Art Museum to an evening refuge from the heat of the Sonoran desert, from a church overlooking Ho'okena Bay, Hawaii to Israel's Judean wilderness, from the classroom to the synagogue to the community center, from contemporary to ancient thought to the text of the Bible itself, Re-Imagining Eve and Adam has drawn its inspiration from unexpected sources, compelling the reader to not only re-imagine, but remember and reclaim the legacies of Eve, Lilith, Sarah, Leah, Lot's daughters, Micah's mother, Mrs. Job, Vashti, Susanna, Dinah, Tamar and the Levite's Concubine. It is for the reader to decide what is a delectable Re-imagining, a desired Remembering, or a palatable Reclaiming.
