About "A Feminist Companion to Paul"
The seventh volume of this companion series is devoted to the writings ascribed to Paul but widely thought not to be genuinely from the Apostle. These are of particular importance in showing how Paul's authority was exploited in the Early Church, and the topics addressed often deal with Christian discipline and hierarchy. Hence there is a particularly strong feminist agenda to be explored here. The Pastoral Epistles, Ephesians and Colossians are prominent among the writings addressed in this collection, and the authors include* David Scholer, Louise Schottroff, Bonnie Thurston, Lilian Portefaix, Sara Winter and Ingrid Rosa Kitzberger.
