From the Publisher: Adultery, harlotry, independence, and power. Few today would say that these are equal. But to the male-dominated, male-documented world of ancient Israel and early Christianity, a woman who asserted herself was the equivalent of a prostitute. In a world where religious law severely limited women’s opportunities, those who did use prostitution and adultery to find a form of freedom not readily available to most women were castigated for their actions. This new book from Gail Corrington examines the treatment some of these women recieved and illustrates how biblical texts often apply the term “adultery” to any independant female behavior….sexual or not.
