Re: The Red Tent

I felt much the same way you did about The Red Tent. I thought it was a good story for its own sake, and that it was an cool way to bring a story like that to life. But I did not (NOT, NOT, NOT) like its treatment of men, particularly the prophets. I do not believe that prophets would behave in that way (not least marry a wife who practiced another religion. Hello? That's why he went back to Laban to find a wife).

I read The Red Tent after I read Sarah and Rebekah, but before Rachel & Leah. It made me really impatient for OSC's book to come out, so that the story would get told right! I have to wonder whether OSC has read The Red Tent and whether he sees Rachel & Leah and The Wives of Israel as kind of a rebuttal. Because I do!
