    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.
