About "NRSV New Testament Study Bible For Women"
"Women who believe in the Bible and wish to do more than read it devotionally need their own study Bible. The Study Bible for Women: The New Testament is a great beginning." "Over fifty qualified women have provided introductions to the books of the New Testament, as well as commentary on many passages. Editors Catherine Clark Kroeger, Mary Evans, and Elaine Storkey also commissioned essays and notes that address the particular needs, interests, and concerns of women." "Writers include biblical scholars, nurses, midwives, psychologists, archaeologists, housewives, classicists, an art historian, missionaries, professors, pastors, academic administrators, businesswomen, sociologists, theologians, a novelist, students, evangelists, Sunday school teachers, mothers, aunts, sisters, and grandmothers." "The contributors share a commitment to the Scriptures as the inspired Word of God and a desire to ground women in the biblical faith. Each contributor seeks to let the Bible speak to a particular situation, whether a rite of passage, the birth or death of a child, abuse, depression, suffering, body image, fasting, diet, or sexuality." "Many areas of perplexity are addressed, such as the "hard" passages of the Apostle Paul, women as the "weaker" sex, and nuances of "headship" and submission. There are significant theological articles on the person of Jesus Christ, the Trinity, sin, the authority and inspiration of Scripture, biblical interpretation, and male-female relationships, as well as essays on the private lives and occupations of women in New Testament times."--BOOK JACKET.
