Although women often play a crucial role in the most significant events in the Bible, they are typically cast as secondary characters who are less important than the male lead. Or they are presented as bit players who aren’t even named. Yet these are strong women and we do an injustice to the biblical narrative and a disservice to ourselves if we gloss over them. 


This guide takes an intriguing look at some of the women in the New Testament (a second volume is planned), including Mary the Mother of Jesus, Anna and Elizabeth, Mary and Martha, Thecla and Junmia, the female disciples (including Mary Magdalene) and women who are healed or set free from their burdens – women who helped shape and were shaped by Jesus and the early Christian community.
