The First-Wave Bible by Rebekah Curtis

The First-Wave Bible

on the Gospel According to Elizabeth Cady Stanton

If you want to get confused in the Bible, the end is a great place to start. First-wave feminist Matilda Joslyn Gage (1826–1898) said of the troublesome book of Revelation:

A literal devil is to be bound for a thousand years, during which time the saints are to dwell on earth, "every man to have a farm," as I once heard a devout Methodist declare. "But there will not be land enough for that," objected a brother. "O, well, the earth is now two-thirds water, and that will be dried up," was the reply.
