This brief study provides a clear and succinct overview of the role women played in ancient Israelite religion. Meyers points out that too many scholars have left women out of the picture of Israelite religion all together, and that others have treated them simply as part of "non-orthodox" official religion. The author stresses the diversity of religious practices in ancient Israel and that we should take into account "magic" as an important avenue of inquiry, as well as "practices" (not just beliefs).
