The Bible According to Eve: The Women of the Torah by Hadassah Alderson

Her narrative is extraordinaire, not a lot of authors can boldly beam their interpretations in a feminist narrative but Author Hadassah Alderson’s The Bible According to Eve: The Women of the Torah speaks about the wisdom of these women and their lessons for today.

The Bible According to Eve: The Women of the Torah retells the stories of the women of the Hebrew Bible in the first five books. It begins with a poem about the Eve of the books, moves through the story of Eve’s loss in Cain’s murder of Abel and the tale of Noah’s wife to the stories of the patriarchs’ wives of Genesis. It follows with poems relating to the stories of Moses’s family and laws of Leviticus, Numbers, and the other books of the Pentateuch. Boldly told from an all-female perspective, The Bible According to Eve is a more exhaustive treatment of the Bible’s women than The Red Tent or After Abel and Other Stories.

A collection of poetry and feminism that give readers a window into the quiet, solitary yet brave moments of the women in the Bible, their voices, tenderness and fearlessness, these collections will strengthen your soul and inspire you to celebrate your own experience.

Plentiful throughout the pages, Alderson presented these stories with vigor and heartiness, women in the Bible are like us, victors and victims, women who change the course of events, and women who are powerless to affect even their destinies. A book filled with the great women of the Bible, who lived timeless stories, by knowing and learning about them, we can understand what it means to be a woman of faith.

The Bible According to Eve: The Women of the Torah opens the lives of these Biblical women, arranging their journey into parts. Alderson helps us reflect on the significance these women played in our lives and in our faith.   The book outlines the lessons we can take from Eve’s heartbreak after losing her son, to the prophetess Miriam (Moses’ older sister) who like Moses taught and led the women. What this book offers, is a deeper thought and understanding of each, wisdom and insights that can transform our own lives today.
