Odell -- God as mother in Hosea 11 / Helen Sch�ungel-Straumann -- Traces of the goddess in the book of Hosea / Marie-Theres Wacker -- The metaphorization of woman in prophetic speech : an analysis of Ezekiel 23 / Fokkelien van Dijk-Hemmes -- On prophetic propaganda and the politics of "love" : the case of Jeremiah / Athalya Brenner -- Desire under the terebinths : on pornographic representation in the Prophets : a response / Robert P. Carroll -- Rape as a military metaphor in the Hebrew Bible / Pamela Gordon and Harold C. Washington -- Ancient Near Eastern treaty-curses and the ultimate texts of terror : a study of the language of divine sexual abuse in the prophetic corpus / F. Rachel Magdalene -- Can God be trusted? : confronting the deceptive God / Nancy R. Bowen.
Summary: The authoritative status of 'Prophecy' in the Bible poses a challenge to the feminist readers. This challenge is sharpened by the widespread symbolism in prophetic discourse of woman, wife, mother, harlot and the use of what the volume call 'pornoprophetics'. In this collection it is the book of Hosea that attracts special attention, but there are also articles on sexual violence and an introductory essay on prophecy itself as a literary phenomenon. This Feminist Companion offers a sharp confrontation between the voice of the prophetic male and the resistance of the feminist reader.
