SL09252 Toward a Feminist Mormon Midrash: The Prodigal Daughter and Other Imaginative Readings of Scripture [Partial]

How would our understanding of scriptural parables, allegories, and narratives, as well as Church history, be enlarged and enlightened if told through a woman’s understanding and experience? Taking as a model the imaginative expansions and extrapolations of scripture by ancient Jewish rabbis and contemporary Jewish women, this session invites Latter-day Saints to re-imagine their scripture, history, and tradition from a feminist point of view and with a feminist sensibility (as least as far as one man can imagine it!).
