In this pioneering work to identify and address the absence of God in three major narratives in the Hebrew Bible, Lea Riederger Schulte found a pattern that points to a larger societal crisis. Taking a careful look at Genesis 34, Judges 19 and 2 Samuel 13, this study illustrates the absence of God, a foreign presence, and an ongoing problem that is wrongly solved to highlight the consequences of the Israelites breaking their covenant with God.

Using the methodologies of literature criticism, gender studies and the status of rape in its historical context, this volume makes a distinction between modern combinations of rape and biblical rape. The comments and studies on rape in the Bible often read the modern understanding of the victim and the usurper in the biblical text, and lost how it could be understood in ancient Israel.

These biblical rape scenes are closely related to helping to tell the story of Israel's history as a people and the relationship of the covenant with their God.
