Editorial Reviews

Review

"Much discrete advances have been made in feminist biblical studies, in 'New Perspective' Pauline studies, and in post-Shoah theology. As Kathy Ehrensperger brings these three fields together, sparks of insight fly. The limitations of each field appear even as new vistas are open. New possibilities for post-modern Pauline studies are pursued regarding universalism and particularism, mutuality and diversity, feminism and Paul's theology. We cannot afford to ignore these issues in our study of Paul and more generally in our practice of biblical studies."—Daniel Patte, Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, Vanderbilt University (Daniel Patte)

"This book offers a feminist critique of feminism from a Pauline perspective. Kathy Ehrensperger continuously compels her readers to try another angle. She uses the sources of Paul, the history of biblical interpretation, recent developments within biblical studies and theology, and a variety of hermeneutical strategies. This book bridges gaps without establishing harmony. Ehrensperger advocates a theology of mutuality, which confronts misunderstandings and conflicts. She stresses that such a theology implies influencing and being influenced by others, altering and being altered by others. This is a stimulating and thought provoking book, which deserves a wide audience."—Cristina Grenholm, Professor of Systematic Theology, Karlstad University, Sweden (Cristina Grenholm)

"The author must be commended for her ability to embrace large subjects while continually remaining alert to exceptions to the rule. Also, her awareness of the particular character and circumstances of first-century Judaism is remarkable."—Peter J. Tomson, Professor of New Testament Studies at the Protestant Theological Faculty in Brussels (Peter J. Tomson)

'Paul's theology and feminist theology share something that has often been overlooked: they are perspectives that developed from the margins of an otherwise established ideology. It is from this assumption that the author engages in a dialogue between Pauline studies and feminist theology.'
International Review of Biblical Studies, vol 51, 2004/05


'This monograph provides a clear and critical insight into current streams of Pauline scholarship. In my view it is a helpful introduction, and will benefit in due course from more extensive discussion of the Pauline corpus.'
Andrew D. Clarke
