Bonnie Thurston examines the personalities, place, and power of women in the New Testament. She provides a cultural and religious context for them by briefly outlining the position of women in the Greco-Roman world. The aim is to reveal the ways in which early Christianity attempted to liberate people from oppression (particularly patriarchy), as well as to point out the places and ways in which the early Christian community compromised with the dominant society.

About the Author:

Bonnie Thurston, a native of West Virginia, currently lives near Wheeling, West Virginia, having resigned the William F. Orr Professorship in New Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in 2002. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Bethany College (Valedictorian, Class of 1974), and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Virginia. Bonnie has written ten theological books and over 100 articles and taught at the university level for 28 years. Her scholarly research interests in the New Testament include the gospels of Mark and John and the Deutero-Pauline canon and, more generally, the history of Christian spirituality and prayer. She was ordained in 1984 and has served as co-pastor, pastor, or interim of five churches and twice in overseas ministries. She is a spiritual director and retreat speaker. Her poetry frequently appears in religious periodicals, and she has authored one volume of verse; a second is at the press. Bonnie is a widow, an avid reader, gardener, and cook, enjoys classical music (especially the opera and liturgical music), and loves the West Virginia hills.

From Library Journal:

Reconstructing the cultural, religious, and economic roles of women in pre-Christian times and during the New Testament period, Thurston (Pittsburgh Theological Seminary) shows how women were an important force in Christianity as it emerged. Drawing on the work of numerous scholars, the author examines and contrasts the depiction of women in the letters of Paul with the gospels of Mark, Luke, John, and Deutero-Pauline letters (those epistles thought to have been ascribed to Paul pseudonymously by later apostles). She does not include Matthew, which makes little direct mention of women and merits further study. Thurston, an ordained minister, concludes that although the New Testament was a product of patriarchal times, God is not patriarchal, and that the Word "became flesh, not book." This is a well-balanced, thorough, and excellent treatment of a highly charged topic.?Bernadette McGrath, Vancouver P.L., BC
