Inside the Red Tent brings readers into the biblical and historical contexts of the world of Dinah and her four mothers, exploring their stories through the tradition of midrash, sound biblical scholarship, and archeological findings. She gives us a glimpse inside the red tent at the families, relationships, encounters, goddesses, and God that defined their lives and that define ours.
