Overview

This is an insightful examination of the personalities, place, and power of women in the New Testament. Thurston gives the cultural and religious context of women in the Greco-Roman world and seeks to show ways in which early Christianity attempted to liberate people from patriarchic oppression and later compromised under the pressure of the dominant society. She looks specifically at the texts of Paul, Mark, John, and the Luke.
