Description
Reappraising a gospel that has sometimes been considered demeaning to women, here F. Scott Spencer instead touts Luke's gospel as a surprisingly feminist tract, citing the examples of a strong-willed Virgin Mary, Herod Antipas's freethinking wife Joanna, the contentious sisters Mary and Martha, and the presumably fictional woman to whom Jesus alludes in the Parable of the Persistent Widow. Calling upon his knowledge of philosophy, history, and the Old Testament, Spencer makes the case that there is still much to be learned about the diverse and rapidly changing world of Christendom in the first century AD.

"This detailed study by Spencer provides insights into the women Luke mentions.... A wealth of information is packed into each chapter of this book.... A judicious use of humor adds a certain spice to the overall serious nature of Spencer’s analysis.... Recommended."—Choice (American Library Association)
