If this woman wrote the Bible....

Writing for the Patheos faith portal, academic Monica Coleman reflects on the effects of male authorship of biblcal stories about women. She writes...

If women wrote the Bible, it might mention how messy the enterprise of not having children really is. It might mention the girl children the women loved. It might talk about how the men were in the temple, while the bleeding women gathered somewhere else. If women wrote the Bible, we would have more than these solitary scenes where a woman pours out her heart to God, and God fixes it by "opening her womb."
