    A stunning and captivating look at the early Church and the role of women. She uses historical fact and Roman social culture to show how the equality of women was eroded over time by the Roman influence upon the Church. For anyone wishing to restore Jesus' proclamation of the Women as Disciples (Mary, sister of Martha & Lazarus) and Evangelists (Samaritan Woman at the Well), this is an execllant resource.Not to be read by the stubborn heart as it will challenge suppostions and assumptions -- but Highly recommended for those wishing to see Jesus' Kingdom of God come near.
