Rena Pederson's distinguished career in journalism includes serving for sixteen years as editorial page editor of the Dallas Morning News. She is a former finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and was a member of the Pulitzer Prize board for nine years. A winner of multiple writing awards, Pederson is the author of two books—What's Next? Women Redefining Their Dreams in the Prime of Life and What's Missing? Inspiration for Women Seeking Faith and Joy in Their Lives.
"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
Merrill GreeneYarmouth, NSAge: 18-24Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5It has its ups and its downs...February 23, 2012Merrill GreeneYarmouth, NSAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I 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.
