Overview

This volume is an engaging and provocative collection of essays on contemporary feminist biblical studies. Drawing upon their own social, cultural, and religious backgrounds and experiences, contributors read the New Testament as feminists, placing it in the context of globalization.

Calling into question feminist social engagement that does not extend beyond academic halls, churches, and Christians, Feminist New Testament Studies offers new directions for future research and teaching in feminist biblical studies.
