Item description for Women in the New Testament by Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan...

Overview
Much of the history of women, in religion as in other fields, is lost because it was overlooked or considered unimportant. It is therefore surprising that so many fragments of women's stories survive in the New Testament texts composed by men. Why did they include so many references to women and why are women, as a group, treated so positively by the male New Testament writers? Women in the New Testament shows how the stories of women are an integral part of the Gospel and its meaning for us. It also relays how we can respond to the challenge these women represent, whether we are men trying to understand or women trying to find our voices within the tradition of faith found in the New Testament. Chapter one discusses three women of expectant faith. Chapters two and three deal with women who are changed by Jesus. Chapter four focuses on New Testament women of influence. Chapters five and six show how women disciples spread and gave shape to the gospel message.

Reviews - What do customers think about Women in the New Testament?

Great Book  Mar 16, 2007
While visiting St. Vincent Seminary, I bought this book after gaining an interest in women in the Bible from a class on Women in the Pilgrim Church. This by far is the best one I have found about the New Testament women. It includes very relevant scripture passeages and is not afraid to say some things others have been.

I highly reccomend this book for anyone interested in the Bible, women of the Bible or their faith in general.
