About this title


The First Letter to Timothy is a troubling text--especially for those concerned about the marginilization of women in the church. 1 Timothy, which seems to model the church after the structure of a patriarchal household, has served for centuries to reinforce patriarchal structures in the family, society, and the church. But rather than dismiss this text, Elsa Tamez seeks first to reconstruct the situation behind it, analyzing power struggles in the primitive church in relation to social position, gender roles, theological pluralism, and authority in the church.

About the Author:

Elsa Tamez is one of the principle initiators and developers of the feminist perspective of Latin American Liberation Theology. A former director of the Latin American Biblical University in San Jose, Costa Rica, where she is currently Professor of Biblical Studies, she is the author of many books including Bible of the Oppressed and When the Horizons Close.
