Artwork for Healing Jephthah's Daughters
Jephthah is a biblical character who made a short-sighted promise that resulted in the murder of his daughter. Jephthah’s daughter paid the price for his seeming lack of wisdom and maturity. Today, so many daughters, so many fathers, replay this story like a syndicated episode of a 1990s sitcom. In Healing Jephthah’s Daughters, The Reverend Lisa M. Weaver, Ph.D., deploys family systems theory, biblical criticism, and storytelling to explore the childhood traumas women and girls experience at the hands of their fathers - and, at times, their guardians more broadly. Utilizing Judges 11 as a starting point, Lisa guides listeners on a journey from pain toward living a free, healed, and whole life.
