The Bible contains some pretty disturbing takes on gender, but Rev. Wil Gafney, Ph.D. (Brite Divinity School) doesn't shy away from these texts. She wrestles with them, questions them and illuminates them in unexpected ways. We sat down to talk about her latest book, Womanist Midrash. By the end of the episode, Wil had unpacked stories from across the Hebrew scriptures in a way that helps us confront gender based violence today.
As always, a huge thanks to Light Theory for the intro and outro tunes.
