Contents What happened to Dinah? -- Discovering Dinah -- Midrash: reading texts, filling gaps -- Where is God in all this? goddesses and the emergence of Yahwism -- Families, natural and invented -- Retelling the story
Summary The biblical story of Dinah has often been overlooked, until Anita Diamant?s The Red Tent (St. Martin?s Press, 1997), that is. With equal skill and passion, Sandra Hack Polaski unravels the biblical story of Leah, Rachel, Zil?pah, Bil?hah, and Leah?s daughter Dinah, probing aspects of The Red Tent that give us insight into the text and into the lives of women in the ancient Near East. She gives us a glimpse?inside the red tent? at the families, relationships, encounters, goddesses, and God that defined their lives and that define ours
