Lynn Cohick provides an accurate and fulsome picture of the earliest Christian women by examining a wide variety of first-century Jewish and Greco-Roman documents that illuminate their lives. She organizes the book around three major spheres of life: family, religious community, and society in general. Cohick shows that although women during this period were active at all levels within their religious communities, their influence was not always identified by leadership titles nor did their gender always determine their level of participation. The book corrects our understanding of early Christian women by offering an authentic and descriptive historical picture of their lives. Includes black-and-white illustrations from the ancient world.

Lynn H. Cohick (PhD in New Testament/Christian Origins, University of Pennsylvania) isnbsp;professor of New Testament in the Department of Biblical and Theological Studies at Wheaton College and Graduate School, Wheaton, Illinois. Lynn has written Philippians in the Story of God Bible Commentary (Zondervan, 2013) and Ephesians nbsp;in the New Covenant Commentary (Cascade, 2010), as well as Women in the World of the Earliest Christians (Baker Academic, 2009). She exploresnbsp;early Jewish/Christian relations in her book,nbsp; Melito of Sardis: Setting, Purpose, and Sources nbsp;(Brown Judaic Studies, 2000), and in several articles on women in Early Judaism and earliest Christianity. She and her husband reside in Wheaton, Illinois.nbsp;nbsp;
