Fertility and Justice

Reading Brueggemann's "The Land: Place as Gift, Promise, and Challenge in Biblical Faith."

Lots of interesting - but often overdone - ideas; typical Brueggemann.

In his final chapter his premise is that there is a link between economics and sexuality; between the way we treat women and the way we treat the land. I'm not yet sure what I make of it.

He does make one very interesting observation: both promiscuity and domination both reduce women to a comodity; they both dehumanize and objectify.
