Great Bible commentary to go to if you are looking for a perspective that focuses on women. Each entry is by a different author, and some authors are more grounded than others. For example, the entry on the book of Leviticus offers sound scholarship with a literary reading of the text. Some entries, such as the one on 2 Timothy, can leave out information to give the text either a strong anti-women or pro-women cast, that the text simply does not live up to when read as a whole.
