Item Description...
In " The Lost Apostle," award-winning journalist Rena Pederson investigates a little-known subject in eary Christian history-the life and times of the female apostle Junia. Junia was an early convert and leading missionary whose story was "lost" when her name was masculinized to Junias in later centuries. "The Lost Apostle" unfolds like a well-written detective story, presenting Pederson's lively search for the insight and information about a woman some say was the first female apostle.

Publishers Description
Praise for The Lost Apostle
"Pederson--a former editorial page editor at the Dallas Morning News . . . presents the linguistic, historical, and theological rationales used to justify displacing the biblical reference to a female apostle. What she finds is fascinating Not only about Junia, but also about two other little-known female leaders of the Jesus movement . . . Ms. Pederson's constant surprise at her discoveries gives the book an authentic appeal."
--Dwight A. Moody, Dallas Morning News
"Engagingly written and intelligently documented, this book is recommended as a worthy contribution."
--Library Journal
"Thanks to Rena Pederson for digging into The Case of the Missing Apostle like a good police reporter. Junia the apostle was one of the first victims of identity theft. Restoring her name is a service to women everywhere."
--Linda Ellerbee, award-winning television producer, journalist, and best-selling author of Take Big Bites, Move On, and And So It Goes
"As a clergywoman, I am strengthened by Rena Pederson's work. She has done what should have been done years ago. Junia is the role model we've been searching for."
--Dr. Sheron Patterson, senior minister, Highland Hills United Methodist Church; newspaper columnist; and author, Sisters: A Mile in Her Shoes, Lessons from the Lives of Old Testament Women

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Intriguing Expose  Oct 17, 2009
Some women have contended for many years that the Bible, primarily written by man, was biased in the area of giving women credit for their contributions. Certainly, in today's politically correct climate, women wonder if there were female apostles in the time of Christ.

This book does a good job of showing the research surrounding Junia (and a few other women); it reads easily and I found it to be intriguing and enlightening. It is a good source for anyone serious about theology and the historical perspective of Christianity.
Tough to be a man  Sep 28, 2009
Is there any doubt as to the centuries of repression of women by men in the name of God? This book sets the record straight on just how important women were in the initial stages of the spread of the Good Word. What a shame to have wasted centuries of feminine potential in the spread of this Word and in furthering the mission of Christ. At times I am ashamed to be part of the male gender and know what repression has been inflicted on our female counterparts in the name of our faith. Why Junia's story is not better known is only one more indication of where women stand in the body of the faithful. This work is well worth reading if you have an open, searching mind.
