Overview

Though feminist biblical scholarship has critiqued hegemonic masculinities from its beginning through the 1970s and 1980s, there have been few studies dedicated solely or primarily to critical reflection on masculinity per se in the Bible. American biblical, religious, and classical scholars step into the void with 13 discussions on Jesus, gender, and the Gospel of Matthew; Paul, the invisible man; the charge of effeminacy and the verdict of God in Romans; imperial masculinity and Christian asceticism in the pastorals, Hermas, and Luke-Acts; manhood and New Testament studies after September 11; and other topics. There is no sissy index. The Society of Biblical Literature publishes the book and distributes the paperbound edition; Brill distributes the clothbound edition.
