Review:

A powerful work of synthesis. Torjesen is nothing short of brilliant in tracing the connection between the church's move from private to public spheres and the corresponding move to suppress women's leadership. The cumulative effect of the book's argument is to make more rationally urgent than ever the removal of this scandal. --Elizabeth A. Johnson, author of She Who Is

Absolutely first rate! --Jouette M. Bassler, associate editor, The HarperCollins Study Bible

Brilliantly lays bare the historic roots of the church's prejudice against women. A powerful, revealing, insightful book. --RT. REV. John S. Spong, Bishop of Newark

About the Author:

Karen Jo Torjesen, Ph.D., is the Margo L. Goldsmith Chair of Women's Studies and Religion at Claremont Graduate School in California, and an associate of the Institute for Antiquity and Christianity. She is widely regarded as a leading authority on women in ancient Christianity.
