What if Genesis were re-written from the point of view of Eve? What if we were able to perch on the shoulder of Delilah, Jezebel or Mary Magdalene? What if we could look through Mary's eyes and watch Jesus take his first steps? Daughters of the Word allows the hidden women of the Bible to come into view; what is more, these stories encourage them to speak. From Eve to Mary and beyond, we hear new insights from well-known female figures, but perhaps most powerfully we overhear the whispers, shouts and laughter of the ignored or the forgotten women of the Bible. These are the voices of dutiful daughters, careless and loving wives, spurned or self-sacrificing lovers; and their stories are told with insight and power, humour and warmth. From cautionary tales to the example of women who were early forerunners of female economic, educational and cultural liberation, Daughters of the Word steps in to answer perhaps the biggest ever 'What if?' of biblical reading.
