Product Description

In Paul's letter to the Romans he mentions an apostle named Junia, which later church fathers masculinized to Junias. "Pederson hits her stride when she examines the roles of women in early Christian times and speculates on how and why Junia got 'lost.' This is fascinating material,"---Booklist. 272 pages, softcover. Jossey-Bass.

Endorsements

"Pederson--a former editorial page editor at the Dallas Morning News . . . presents the linguistic, historical, and theological rationales used to justify displacing the biblical reference to a female apostle. What she finds is fascinating! Not only about Junia, but also about two other little-known female leaders of the Jesus movement . . . Ms. Pederson's constant surprise at her discoveries gives the book an authentic appeal." --Dwight A. Moody, Dallas Morning News

"Engagingly written and intelligently documented, this book is recommended as a worthy contribution." --Library Journal

"Thanks to Rena Pederson for digging into The Case of the Missing Apostle like a good police reporter. Junia the apostle was one of the first victims of identity theft. Restoring her name is a service to women everywhere."

--Linda Ellerbee, award-winning television producer, journalist, and best-selling author of Take Big Bites, Move On, and And So It Goes

"As a clergywoman, I am strengthened by Rena Pederson's work. She has done what should have been done years ago. Junia is the role model we've been searching for." --Dr. Sheron Patterson, senior minister, Highland Hills United Methodist Church; newspaper columnist; and author, Sisters: A Mile in Her Shoes, Lessons from the Lives of Old Testament Women

    I bought this book a few years back because I was trying to learn more about the egalitarian perspective on Paul's letters and as soon as I heard the idea of a woman apostle, I immediately was interested. The book is a great reference point, though its not a scholarly piece in any sense of the word.

    The author has done their research however, historically and otherwise, but it reads more like a documentary than a "let's look at the theology of this" kind of approach. One of the main focuses should have realistically been looking at Romans 16:7 in Greek, and while some attention was given to it, it was hardly enough to convince me fully. But calling on other ancient and long forgotten examples such as Thecla and women bishops were much appreciated to clarify some things. Overall I would reccomend this book as a basic investigation, but in no way would say its the definitive work on the topic.
