The cycle serves as a coming of age story for Del Jordan growing up first on the outskirts, and later in the centre, of the small, southern Ontario town of Jubilee. Del is portrayed as something of an outsider, unsatisfied with small town life though unwilling to acknowledge the similarities between herself and her mother who also seeks to expand her mind beyond the limited experiences of Jubilee. The cycle is often cited as concerning many feminist ideas and it is in this context that the text deals primarily with female characters, with only a few male figures playing important roles.

This volume describes the lifecycle events and daily life activities experienced by girls and women in ancient Israel examining recent biblical scholarship and other textual evidence from the ancient Near East and Egypt including archaeological, iconographic and ethnographic data. From this Ebeling creates a detailed, accessible description of the lives of women living in the central highland villages of Iron Age I ca.
The book opens with an introduction that provides a brief historical survey of Iron Age ca. It continues with seven thematic chapters that chronicle her life, focusing on the specific events, customs, crafts, technologies and other activities in which an Israelite female would have participated on a daily basis.
Not only does she draw on multiple sources to reconstruct the tasks and relationships that defined women's lives, but also she gives vitality to those features by tracing the life course of a fictional woman in a highland village. Her sensitive portrayal of an imagined person, based on meticulously researched evidence, helps readers discover what life was really like for women in biblical antiquity. Women's Lives in Biblical Times is unique. Each chapter begins with "Orah's Story," fictional narratives about the life of an Israelite woman in the early Iron Age.
Unlike popular novels based on biblical characters, the stories about Orah are informed and written by a scholar of the ancient Near East.
Then, Ebeling uses her archaeological and historical expertise to explore stages in the life of women including birth, childhood, puberty, marriage, motherhood, widowhood, death, and burial.
She explores the roles women played in agriculture, food preparation, and healthcare, as well as artistic celebrations such as dance and music. Ebeling's book will replace Diamant's novel, The Red Tent , in several of my courses.
Women's Lives in Biblical Times will be a valuable tool not only in college and seminary classrooms, but also within congregations. In Women's Lives in Biblical Times , Jennie Ebeling takes up a complex and important topic, one that merits intensive study. Her sophisticated analysis of archaeological data, biblical passages and anthropological studies ensures that scholars well versed in the field will find much new to consider. At the same time, her readable style of writing and the fictional storyline that enhances her scholarly presentation make this book appealing to students and other interested readers.
Women's Lives in Biblical Times will be an asset in libraries and classrooms, and in personal collections. In Women's Lives in Biblical Times , Jennie Ebeling creatively combines an imaginative sketch of the life of an ancient Israelite woman with a rich array of biblical, archaeological, and comparative evidence, both compellingly to describe and convincingly to document the nature of everyday existence for the typical Israelite woman of the late second millennium BCE.
The result is a study that is simultaneously learned and fun, a wonderful contribution to our understanding of Israelite women and tradition. It will appeal to readers who have read popular fictions or viewed modern films involving biblical characters, to students and teachers of courses dealing with women in the Bible, and to scholars who are interested in an in-depth scholarly treatment of the topic.
But up to now there has been no full-scale account by anyone - and none specifically about women, none by archaeologists who are now the best qualified to write about "how it really was" ordinary folk.
This book, by a woman who is a professional field archaeologist working in Israel, and who also has sound training in biblical studies, is the book we have been waiting for. It is conceived in a partly fictional setting - the story of "Orah" - but it is based on the most recent and best archaeological information.
Orah comes to life and speaks to us dramatically about her varied roles in her small world, her hardships and hopes. The story is riveting. Ebeling to writer her own book, one that would be less dramatic but perhaps present a more realistic, complex picture of women's everyday lives in ancient Israel. While the core of Women's Lives in Biblical Times is nonfictional, Ebeling brings the subject to life in the person of 'Orah,' a hypothetical woman living in a small village of the central highlands in the Iron Age 1 circa B.
