Editorial Reviews

Review

“…the ten essays represent a wide range of viewpoints, from ‘liberal’ and ‘nontraditional’ to more conservative and evangelical perspectives.” –RBL (Society of Biblical Literature), 2/05

“The feminist perspective on Paul has been underrepresented in publications that can be readily accessed as exegetical resources for theological students. This volume responds to that need.… It provides a sampling of feminist approaches to New Testament texts. It exemplifies, on the whole, very careful work with primary texts that extend beyond those of the New Testament canon.” – Review of Biblical Literature, 4/05 (Review of Biblical Literature) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Of course Paul was not necessarily a Feminist - that's why this book exists - for feminists. Thus, this is a feminist companion to reading non-feminist books (Pauline letters). I read Levine's Feminist Companion to Deutero-Pauline Letters and it was completly helpful in my academic and personal studies. I wrote a whole exegetical based on one of its essays alone, which helped prove why it is important to consider the historical, rhetorical, and literary settings of these letters before jumping to conclusions (such as "Paul is not a feminist... read 1 Corinthians"). Such a statement is a reason one would enjoy this book.

This book is bunk. Paul was not a feminist. Read Corinthians.
