About the Author

Annette Bourland Huizenga serves as assistant dean and associate professor of New Testament at the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary (Dubuque, Iowa). Her research interests include the Pauline letters and communities, women in the early church, households in the Roman Empire, and ancient moral-philosophical education. These subjects all come into play in her first book Moral Education for Women in the Pastoral and Pythagorean Letters. She has written several articles about the expectations for women's behavior, clothing, and virtues in the ancient world. In 2015, the University of Dubuque awarded Dr. Huizenga with the William L. Lomax Award for excellence in Teaching and Advising.


"Huizenga has written an extremely insightful, richly informed, and very readable commentary on the Pastoral Epistles. Her searching analysis defines the patriarchal tenor of the letters with cutting precision, showing how this ideology once worked and works still. This study is an impressive example of feminist biblical criticism, well attuned to the rhetorical cast of the epistles and their socio-historical location. The commentary also features nicely integrated excerpts from other women commentators, which enrich the discussion and symbolize a collaborative interpretive method. I highly recommend this commentary to both students and teachers."Charles H. Cosgrove, Professor of Early Christian Literature, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
"Annette Huizenga invites us into a difficult conversation about the Pastor's instructions regarding slavery and gender roles. Huizenga's interpretation, joined by the voices of numerous others, is a provocative starting point for contemporary appropriation of the Pastoral Epistles. Accessible and clearly written, this book will be a useful resource for years to come."Susan Hylen, Candler School of Theology, Emory University
"Dr. Annette Bourland Huizenga assembles a multitude of voices to expound upon these confounding epistles. With unflinching clarity, the scholars examine the text, wading through troubling waters, plunging into perilous depths, and finding refreshing life. The result is a commentary of indispensable wisdom, which every pastor should read and understand."Rev. Carol Howard Merritt, Pastor and author of Healing Spiritual Wounds
"Professor Annette Huizenga clearly situates the Pastoral Letters within their ancient Greco-Roman context, demonstrating how they mirror the patriarchal society out of which they emerged, thus allowing the twenty-first-century reader to understand the epistles on their own terms. With great pastoral sensitivity, she is able to help readers discern how these texts might be liberative for both men and women today."Laurie Brink, OP, Associate Professor of New Testament Studies, Catholic Theological Union
"Another interesting aspect of this commentary is the role that other authors contribute to it. Huizenga does not try to convince the reader that one author is correct or not, but rather the reader is allowed to decide amongst the different presentations. This aspect brought a richness and diversity to the commentary that I have not seen with other commentaries and I would hope that other commentary series would incorporate this method."Catholic Library World
