Review of the book Wicked Women Of The Bible by Ann Spangler

I really enjoyed this book. I read it in about 2 days. I also like how real the stories were and how accurate they were. The first story was about Adam and Eve and there were more stories as well. I also enjoyed the footnotes at the bottom of the pages that helped make the story more real and easier to understand. I liked the footnote on page 27 which says " Though the biblical text never explicitly states that Sarah's period started again, some scholars point out there is no evidence that men and women ate separately in the ancient world. That was a custom that developed later. When Abraham replied that was wife was in the tent he may have been employing a polite euphemism, indicating that she was menstruating and was unable to join him. For this to have been the case, she would have needed to begin menstruating just after baking the bread because bread baking would have been forbidden to menstruating woman. "I also learned something from the footnote on page 55 which said " The term for prostitute may have also meant innkeeper. In that era innkeepers were often associated with prostitutes. " I enjoyed this book because I learned more about the bible and also could follow along because I have been reading the bible and studying it for over 7 years so I know what is real and what is not and if a scripture is missued or not. So I really enjoyed this book.
