"Because this book has been out of print for some time and numerous people have urged that it be reprinted, this second edition, subtitled Reclaiming the Ideal, provides an opportunity to make a few corrections. It also provides an opportunity to respond to several constructive remarks made regarding the earlier volume. Since that study, the second volume of Essays on Women in Earliest Christianity has come into print and readers will profit from several references to significant studies in that volume..." -from the Preface to the 2nd edition

In 2004, Dr. Osburn took early retirement as a university professor and began work with the Caris Foundation. Caris is a non-profit organization established to aid impoverished people by providing basic needs such as medical, housing, nutrition, and welfare. In doing so, the foundation collaborates with existing local entities that understand their community and can implement solutions that are culturally relevant and sustainable.
An internationally respected biblical scholar, Osburn continues as co-editor of the Greek New Testament project at the University of Muenster, Germany. Equally at home in Texas or primitive jungle huts, he volunteered for three decades as a Greek translation consultant to Bible translators working among pre-literate people in Guatemala, the headwaters of the Amazon, and Native American reservations. He assisted in resolving difficult linguistic and cultural problems encountered in translating the biblical text into tribal languages. He also developed a keen sensitivity to humanitarian needs in Third World situations.
Ana Stuckless5 Stars Out Of 5April 10, 2009Ana StucklessThis book is wonderful!!!! A must read. Very good and balanced analysis not only about women's role in the church but more than that, it goes deeply into the whole mindset behind the feminist and patriarchal points of view. It really surprised me the fact that a male author has been capable of such truthful, intelligent an uncompromised approach. I sure recommend it. And in regards to the Christianbook, please be aware that they have the BEST price for this book. I have search in other places and it is either out of print, or it costs more than $70.00. So, summing up, both book and price work real nice.
