The Mighty Red Tent Review

Hello beautiful women.
I have been inspired to make a true book club post so we can comment on many ideas to start off with the first part of the book. Some things I have found online to guide us (with a real twist of my own):
---So this jacob fellow: good, bad, emotional, in love, kind, tormented?
---It is amazing how these stories are passed along, men to boys, women to girls and then somehow written into the version of the bible we see today.
---Did women run the show or what??
---How fortunate we are to have women friends listening, understanding and being compassionate together. Childbirth could not have been done without every women helping each other.
Just some thoughts to comment on. I would sit on hay in this tent

so I actually pulled out my bible to check up on Jacob and the 12 tribes of Israel. I LOVE how his name was changed to isRAel after the murders...his 12 sons being the 12 tribes. He is the father of Judaism, right? So the 12 tribes are the root of all christian peoples and when I got my big Mormon blessing, I was told what tribe I was from. weird, but so amazing to look at this story from her perspective and then read the bible and read the men's perspective.

It's so weird to read that the main perspective holds that Dinah was held captive and being raped and the murders were done to rescue her. I also love Joseph's story...being sold w/ his amazing technicolor dreamcoat!! and that he is gay "favoring his handsome" boys. His being sold into slavery was always told to us in Sunday school.

ps we need a beautiful tent and I can't WAIT to be at your births!

It is hard to believe that a story such as this could be passed along from generation to generation without the storytellers being emotional and expressing how they feel, what they thought happened and so forth. I would change my name as well if I were associated to the rape/murder of people. Shocking story and soooo real it is hard to believe that it is totally fiction.
