Huldah. This book reveals- for the first time ever - the extraordinary impact of Huldah the prophet on our Bible. She was both a leader of exilic Jews and a principal author of Hebrew Scripture. She penned the Shema: the ardent, prayerful praise that millions of worshipers repeat twice daily. Moreover, Jesus quoted as his own last words the ones that Huldah had writt en centuries before"Into your hand I commit my spirit". Huldah was an extraordinary writer - arguably she ranks among the best in Hebrew Scripture. As such, she added to God's Word a feminine aspect that has inspired numberless believers - men and women alike. This book's new techniques reveal that though subjected to extreme verbal abuse, Huldah surmounted her era's high barriers to women. As elder, queen mother, and war leader during the sixth century BCE, she helped shape Israel's history. And what, then, can this book mean to scholars - both women and men? Feminists need a rallying point and a heroine, and Huldah makes a superb one. In years ahead, experts might well place Huldah alongside the very greatest women of antiquity; indeed, they may even conclude that she is among the most influential people in human history.

Huldah A Daughter Of The Revolution. Excerpt from Huldah a Daughter of the Revolution: And Other Poems of American Patriotism A Hundred Years Ago. Low, subtle whispers of summer-tide - Though edgings of snow still clung beside The jagged rocks, and with half-dazed look - Like a child just waked - lay the sleepy brods! Perchance 'twas the sunshine's lengthened ray, The lowing cattle, the haze that lay On the Milton hills, or that strange spell In the robin's note - I cannot tell - But Huldah, leaving her spinning, knew And felt the restlessness, as she threw The bars of the lattice open! Cool and sweet, As though from some pine wood's deep retreat - With a slow, coy tread, the fresh winds crept Through the sliding bars; on the hearth, wing-swept, About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Huldah. A young girl has frightening dreams and visions. An innocent baby dies. A wicked king lashes out in anger and hatred, dispensing a vile revenge on the people of Jerusalem. Blood runs in the streets. Rogue priests plot evil deeds. A long line of wicked kings has ruled the land and turned the people away from their God. From the kings to the priests, to the citizens of back alleys and byways, the darkness of evil infests the land. By standing for God and following His leading, can a lone prophetess make a difference? Will anyone listen? Will anyone follow? Walk with Huldah as she faces evil head-on, defying the king, the king's advisors, and pointing the way back to God. The road she travels is dark and dangerous and will have you holding your breath as she journeys into the unknown. "Sharon's significant historical research, combined with her vivid imagination and facility with language, animate the lives of little-known Bible characters with credibility and give an enriched understanding of the epochs in which they lived."-Rev.

Three Women Of Hope. The land of Israel is intimately linked to the adventures of the prophets, men like Elijah, Amos, Hosea, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and the list goes on and on. How about prophets who were women? Does anyone remember that two gates of the Jerusalem Temple bore the name of Huldah, one of these women? Probably not, which is not all that astonishing given that history was written by men… Some women have, however, found places in history: Sarah and Hagar, Rebekah, Rachel and Leah, to name a few. Other women also deserve to emerge from silence: women like Miriam, Hannah, and Huldah. It is nonetheless true that these women have to be identified with reference to a man: the first is Moses' sister, the second is Samuel's mother, the third a colleague of King Josiah, Israel's reformer. This little book paints their portraits, with much sensitivity and tenderness, but never restraining disgust when the role of the women is found to have been erased unjustly. The abundant use made here of Jewish traditions of Bible reading will help readers discover the riches of a tradition uniquely suited to broadening their experience. Nor will they be left unaffected or indifferent by the deep spirituality revealed here. Book jacket.
