This collection of essays on the books of Tobit and Judith is a welcome addition to a landmark series that has put feminist criticism prominently on the map of biblical studies. It is a significant addition as well because it is the first time Tobit appears in the Feminist Companion Series. The combination of new and previously published studies-the latter either revised or accompanied by the authors' self-responses to their earlier work (and in one case a response by Brenner-Idan)-works splendidly to give readers a sense of developments in feminist studies of Tobit and Judith. With its focus on identity-religious, gendered, individual or group, its formation or loss-and related topics such as diaspora, boundaries, the body, and food as an identity marker, this volume is relevant for the study not only of Tobit and Judith but of other biblical books as well. * J. Cheryl Exum, University of Sheffield, UK * An international treasure trove of articles some first published twenty years ago are here coupled with previously published essays and new essays on Judith and Tobit. What is being suggested here is programmatic counsel about radical, transformative, phase-shift change in our understanding of biblical studies. When Judith says, "let us set an example for the people" (Jdt 8:24) to the magistrates of Bethulia, they don't get it, but perhaps we can. Patriarchy still exists, but along side it something new is emerging-a network of shared agency and identity (heterarchy). This book is highly recommended for classes on Tobit and Judith or methodology. * Toni Craven, Texas Christian University, USA *
