Vindicating the Vixens: Revisiting Sexualized, Vilified, and Marginalized Women of the Bible
by Sandra Glahn
Kregel Academic, November 2017
Did the Samaritan woman really divorce five husbands in a world in which women rarely divorced even one? Did Bathsheba seduce King David by bathing in the nude? Was Mary Magdalene really a reformed prostitute? While many have written studies of the women in the Bible, Vindicating the Vixens: Revisiting Sexualized, Vilified, and Marginalized Women of the Bible is a new kind of book—one in which a diverse team of male and female scholars look afresh at women in the Bible whose stories we have misunderstood. The result is a new glimpse into God’s heart for anyone, male or female, who has limited social power. (Profits from this work benefit the International Justice Mission.)
Dr. Sandra L. Glahn, general editor, is a professor at Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS). Dr. Glahn is the author or coauthor of more than twenty books, including the Coffee Cup Bible Study series. She is also a regular blogger for bible.org‘s Engage blog for women in Christian leadership. You can find more about her at www.aspire2.com.

Greetings from Sarah Sundin! Today I have the privilege of interviewing versatile author and theologian Dr. Sandra Glahn. In addition to a popular series of bible studies, she’s authored numerous books focusing on adoption, infertility, and bioethics.
Sandra, how many books do you have published? What are a few of your latest titles?
I have published eighteen books with traditional publishers, and I’ve coauthored three self-published titles. My most recent titles are in the Coffee Cup Bible Study series (AMG)—Sumatra with the Seven Churches and Chai with Malachi. The former explores Christ’s messages to the seven churches of Revelation. Also, my most recent novel is Informed Consent (Cook), a work of medical suspense.
