The article explores several reasons feminists should read the Bible. The author mentions how contemporary feminists view the Bible as a book that evokes a backward thinking, a patriarchally defined body of literary work that has been used historically to maintain and perpetuate the oppression of women. They consider the bible as something of a demonic manuscript that outlines the evils of patriarchy. Despite these conceptions, there has been a growth in the number of feminists wanting to read, research and write about biblical texts in the 1990s.
