Item Description...
This is an insightful examination of the personalities, place, and power of women in the New Testament. Thurston gives the cultural and religious context of women in the Greco-Roman world and seeks to show ways in which early Christianity attempted to liberate people from patriarchic oppression and later compromised under the pressure of the dominant society. She looks specifically at the texts of Paul, Mark, John, and the Luke.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Reference  Feb 22, 2007
Excellent reference for divinity students in understanding the culture of the time the gospels were written.
An excellent, readable, scholarly work  Apr 30, 2000
This book is an excellent, thoroughly-researched, very interesting commentary on women in the New Testament. It provides both context and balance in discussing passages, analyzing the societies (Jewish, Roman, Early Christian and Hellenic) when the various epistles and Gospels were authored. Ms. Thurston discusses what is both said and unsaid, and provides more accurate translations of some of the more controversial or unclear language (i.e. diakonos). Of particular interest for those seeking further study is the bibliography included at the end of every chapter. An important and inspiring book.
An excellent book for study about New Testament women  Nov 8, 1999
I am currently teaching a series on "Lesser-Known Women of the Bible." I find Professor Thurston's book to be based on sound research and thoughtful reflection. Of particular help was the section on the cultural and religious background, which focusses on the place of women in N.T. culture. I would suggest this book for study for both women and men who wish to explore what the Bible REALLY says about women.
