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.

Patrick Miller is widely known as an educator, editor, President of the Society of Biblical Literature, and academic who is concerned to ensure that academics and the life of the church are not torn asunder in this era of fragmentation. This volume honors him for his life's work, presenting 24 essays by students and colleagues on themes dear to Miller: (1) the Psalms and God's nearness to his people, and (2) Torah (Deuteronomy, in particular) and God's connection with his people in their lives together.

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.

Letters To Huldah. LETTERS TO HULDAH gives new meaning to the phrase 'a life in letters'. Though dated from 1988 to 1994, Jill Hellyer's letters to her former English teacher gradually reveal the story of her life. Orphaned at 12, she is brought up by maiden aunts and marries an older man who turns out to be both violent and a sex offender. Isolated in rural New South Wales, she raises three children -- her two sons suffer mental and physical illnesses that lead to many battles with authorities. But through it all she is a writer, of poems and of amazing letters, which take us into her world, revealing joys as well as sorrows.

The One Who Reads May Run. The purpose of this volume is to honor the work of Edgar Conrad. The essays focus on various aspects of Conrad's work, especially the prophetic literature, the Bible as literature, canonical issues, and engaged readings. In developing these lines of scholarship, the authors pay tribute to Conrad and seek to take his work further. The contributions from Korean scholars are especially noteworthy, since Conrad has had significant influence on Korean biblical scholarship through students who studied under him at the University of Queensland.
