Christian or interfaith?
I did not intend The Woman Who Named God to be a Christian book, a Jewish book, or a Muslim book. I wrote the book to re-tell a biblical story and to point out the many connections between our era and the biblical past. For instance, the war in Iraq has its origins in this story. I also wanted to write about strong women in the Bible and to illuminate the inner lives of biblical characters. However, there are some readers who are aggrieved that the book is not more “christian” and who are offended that I take the Koran and Jewish commentary into account. I am saddened by this point of view.
