Review:

Drawing on archaeology, women's studies, biblical research, anthropology, and the author's original research on rock carvings at women's shrines, Valerie Abrahamsen offers new and rich insights into the religious roles of women in Philippi during the early Christian era. Abrahamsen portrays a world in which, although it was patriarchal, women still held religious power and the freedom to pursue their art in the service of religion. She then demonstrates that women brought those practices and roles with them into the church. Women And Worship At Philippi thus continues transforming our understanding of women in the early church. While maintaining rigorous research scholarly standards, Women And Worship At Philippi is ideal reading for the non-specialist general reader with an interest in learning more of women's spiritual and religious heritage from the earliest days of the Christian era. -- Midwest Book Review
