Le indomabili donne della Bibbia (The Untamable Women of the Bible)

Le indomabili donne della Bibbia (The Untamable Women of the Bible)

How many times have we heard about the women of the Bible? But do we really know them? This book sheds a light on them and shows how similar those figures can be to contemporary girls and women.

The past holds fascinating stories, but those of women have often been forgotten or lost in time. The Untamable Women of the Bible blends religion and feminism, drawing the portraits of 25 rebellious and strong women; from the most famous, like Eve and Mary, to lesser-known characters, like Abigail and Micol. Each portrait is made up by three sections: scriptures and fiction intertwine to build the woman’s story, told in first person narration; then fun facts and references in pop culture complete it and show how contemporary their tales are, and how deeply arts and entertainment are constantly influenced by them.
