Much of the history of women, in religion as in other fields, is lost because it was overlooked or considered unimportant. It is therefore surprising that so many fragments of women?s stories survive in the New Testament texts, which were composed by men. Why did they include so many references to women and why are women, as a group, treated so positively by the male New Testament writers? Women in the New Testament shows how the stories of women are an integral part of the Gospel and its meaning for us. It also conveys how we can respond to the challenge these women represent, whether we are men trying to understand or women trying to find our voices within the tradition of faith found in the New Testament. Chapter one discusses three women of expectant faith. Chapters two and three deal with women who are changed by Jesus. Chapter four focuses on New Testament women of influence. Chapters five and six show how women disciples spread and gave shape to the gospel message. Chapters are ?Women of Expectant Faith,? ?Women Changed by Jesus,? ?More Women Changed by Jesus,? ?Women of Prominence,? ?Women and Discipleship,? and ?More Women and Discipleship.??. . . sets out a grand buffet of interesting material for preachers, reflective readers, and discussion groups.?
