While feminist resistance to conventional gender representation had primarily taken place in the traditional spheres of politics and economics, few have challenged religious frontiers. This is significant since many claim that the historical subordination of females had been legitimated and propagated through religious ideologies and institutions. This study represents an original contribution to feminist critical analysis of gender representation by pioneering a comparative study between two translations of the bible, demonstrating that the NIV¿s use of non-inclusive language results in conventional patriarchal representations with the male as the dominant universal sex, while the NRSV¿s use of inclusive language results in resistive interpretations, thus representing females as unsubordinated and on equal terms with males. With comprehensive analysis at the level of the word, phrase and discourse, coupled with alternative readings from The Woman¿s Bible and The Gospel of Mary, this book is an ideal read for academics in the fields of Gender Studies and Feminist Stylistics, as well as seekers of the truth.
