In this formidable collection, contributors including Richard Hays, Daniel Boyarin, Kathleen Corley, Beverly Gaventa, Margaret MacDonald and Luise Schottroff explore such topics as gender, sexuality, marriage, the physical body, leadership, economic justice, Jewish-Christian relations, metaphors of birth and motherhood, adoption, and slavery.
