Reviews and endorsements

"This work is a first within the discipline of New Testament Studies."
New York Times Book Review

,

"A brilliant scholarly treatise which succeeds in bringing to our consciousness women who played an important role in the origins of Christianity."
Sisters Today

,

"One of those mind-arresting thought-turning books that angles the reader’s way of seeing old texts in new and fruitful ways . . . The vision she offers is engaging, enlightening and utterly interesting. Most important, it is plausible."
The Christian Century

,

"Ground-breaking, quietly but completely radical, thoroughly in union with Christian tradition at its best, and a cause for great hope in the church of the future."
Best Sellers

,

"New information and fresh insights expressed in facile prose make In Memory of Her a satisfying book."
National Catholic Reporter

,

"Must reading for scholars and students of the early church and New Testament, for church people ('leadership' included), for feminists and likely for others as well."
