Reading Scripture anew, the authors contend, is each time an exercise of power. It is always invested in ideology, whether spoken or unspoken. By adopting the viewpoints of marginalized women, and by examining the motivations of the male characters as they deploy power, Fewell and Gunn seek an approach to biblical interpretation that promises to liberate women and men from, rather than reinforce, religious ideologies of male dominance.
