Women in Mark's Gospel

Overview

"[This] is a timely topic, one that has not yet been dealt with. Miller writes clearly and competently. The first chapter sets out her method, which draws from both literary critical and feminist work. She then treats the women of Mark?s Gospel in sequence. Her work will provide a helpful supplement to the standard commentaries. It will also be useful in women?s studies classes, and provides a nice example of a balanced feminist interpretation of the Gospels." -Dr. Alan Culpepper, Mercer University, Atlanta.
