Reviews

"The original essays in this collection offer a comprehensive scan of the role of women and attitudes to women in the various New Testament books and their cultural context....The value of this work is its scope in viewing the whole span of New Testament traditions from a feminist perspective."--The Bible Today "This anthology is a model of comparative, critical scholarship. With shrewd sensitivity to questions of gender analysis, textual exegesis and historical method, the authors canvass a broad range of material--pagan, Jewish, and Christian; literary and archaeological--to assess the roles of women, imagined and actual, in various ancient Christian communities. No orthodoxy, ecclesiastical, academic, or feminist, emerges unchallenged. Kraemer, D'Angelo and their colleagues deserve our warm thanks. Bravissima!"--Paula Fredricksen, Boston University "This superb collection will be an ideal text book for undergraduate and seminary courses on the history of early Christian women. Both students and scholars will appreciate the lucid overviews of the results of over two decades of intensive feminist research on early Christian women. The authors present their material honestly and fairly without the apologetic tendencies that characterize some Christian treatments of women in the New Testament. The attention to the Jewish and other neighbors of early Christian women continues the valuable inter religious model pioneered by Kraemer in her earlier works."--Bernadette J. Brooten, Brandeis University "Congratulations to Ross Kraemer and Mary Rose DAngelo for giving us this excellent collection of critical, incisive, and diverse essays. We are all in their debt."--Elaine Pagels, Princeton University "An outstanding collection of articles by informed women scholars."--Edgar Krentz, Lutheran School of Theology "...well structured and written in...a lucid style....This book is certainly a superb introduction for the layperson, but it is, at the same time, also an excellent summation for the expert....an excellent contribution to the study of somen in ancient Christianity."--Journal of Jewish Studies "The richness of this field of inquiry and the increasing sophistication of feminist hermeneutical methods is well demonstrated in this valuable resource.--The Journal of Religion "...a well-written and accessible resource for studying these issues."--Review of Biblical Literature "...this is a fine collection that makes a graet deal of the relevant evidence from antiquity accessible and understandable to a non-specialist."--Journal of Early Christian Studies "The original essays in this collection offer a comprehensive scan of the role of women and attitudes to women in the various New Testament books and their cultural context....The value of this work is its scope in viewing the whole span of New Testament traditions from a feminist perspective."--The Bible Today "This anthology is a model of comparative, critical scholarship.

The various authors exemplify the historical-critical approach to the bible thus reinforcing class discussions and further encouraging students."--Marie A. Conn, Chestnut Hill College "An excellent first-of-its-kind study of women, gender and religion in early Christian history....While scholarly throughout, it touches upon the lives of Christian women and gender roles in a way that makes the material accessible to both the general reader and the scholar alike."--Rosemary Rader, St. Olaf College "A comprehensive collection of essays by first-rate feminist scholars. An essential companion volume for every N.T. Introduction class."--Barbara Bowe, Catholic Theological Union
