Review:

“...a richly textured collection that is both diverse and engaging.” –Review of Biblical Literature, May 2005 (Review of Biblical Literature)

"AFeminist Companion offers insights from both traditional evangelical andother ways of seeing the text. It is a fine resource for continuing studies onthe book of Acts and the Early Church."-Themelios, October 2005
(Themelios)

"As is to be expected with a volume that promises to remember women's absences in the field of biblical studies as either participants of subjects for analysis, the diverse methods used from those within biblical studies as well as those who offer contributions from other disciplines attests to the healthy state of feminist studies in a new millennia. Amy- Jill Levine's timely caution that without transparency in the sharing of diverse perspectives our 'studies risk ossification, the silence of certain voices, co-optation by those who insist they speak for everyone', steers the reader through the ensuing 'storm-centre'."- Deborah Bower, The Biblical and Critical Theory, Vol. 2, Number 1, 2006
