Purchase Junia: A Woman An Apostle from Amazon and CBE will receive a portion of the sale.
Written specifically for a general readership, Junia, a Woman, an Apostle asks and answers one question—was there a female apostle?
A thorough examination of Romans 16:7, the book begins with a helpful introduction of terms, how to use expert opinion, and some cultural background. Then the book goes on to explore three critical questions:
1) was the person mentioned in the verse a woman?
2) was this person merely a “messenger” or an “apostle”?
3) was this person “among” the apostles or “known to” the apostles?
The author's critical analysis provides compelling reasons to believe that Junia was a woman apostle.
"The fact that the book is written in such a way as to be accessible to a range of interested readers—it provides the resources for laity to follow along as well as critical engagement with the best scholarship—makes it an absolute gem. Junia, A Woman, An Apostle is an invaluable work which should be kept on the shelf of anyone interested in the debate over women's role in leadership."—CBE reviewer
