Sarah Laughed takes a fresh look at some of the best-known narratives in the Bible, inviting us to see how the stories look from the point of view of women characters such as Eve, Sarah, Hagar, Hannah and Bathsheba. The result is a book that will open the eyes of many for whom the Old Testament has become dulled and obscured by the questionable interpretations with which so many of these stories have long been overlaid.
? This book is about digging out the seams, as if for gold and silver from the rock. It is about returning to the text and finding yet another glint of meaning which had not been previously noticed.?
