Wisdom Commentary Series

The Wisdom Commentary (WC) series is the first scholarly collaboration to offer detailed feminist interpretation of every book of the Bible. The sixty-volume collection makes the best of current feminist biblical scholarship available in an accessible format to aid preachers and teachers in their advancement toward God’s vision of dignity, equality, and justice for all.

The aim of this commentary series is to provide feminist interpretation of every section of the Bible, in serious, scholarly engagement with the whole text from a feminist perspective. A central concern is how the text is heard and understood by men and women today. At the same time, this commentary aims to be faithful to the ancient text.

Distinctive features:
  • Scholars represent many different religious traditions, diverse ages, and varying cultural, racial, ethnic, and social contexts
  • Includes feminist biblical interpretation by both pioneers in the field and the younger generation of scholars
  • Diverse voices of scholars offering other perspectives from that of the main author
  • Uses the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV), which is provided for easy reference at the top of each section of commentary
  • “Translation Matters” raise questions about problematic translations
  • Wherever Hebrew or Greek words are used, English translation is provided

The Wisdom Commentary series has a dedicated website which can be accessed here.
