Scot McKnight has a new ebook out called Junia is not Alone, which is available from Amazon. On his blog he says: 'It’s about Junia from Romans 16:7. It tells the story of Junia in the history of the Bible, and it shows how her story mirrors the story of women in the Bible, in the history of the church, and in our current world where many women are finding their voice.'
I haven't read it yet, but am in the process of downloading a Kindle app so that I can! There's a review here from Jenny Rae Armstrong where she says, 'Of course it contained the solid, thoughtful scholarship we’ve come to expect from McKnight. But what blessed me about this book was his passion. Women have not only been silenced, our heroines have been flat-out erased, their stories muted by neglect at best, ugly ulterior motives and misogynistic agendas at worst. And that, McKnight fumes, is not okay.'
I really liked one of her comments on her own post, in response to someone wondering whether the complementarian or egalitarian view of scripture is right, where she says, 'I decided long ago that if I was going to err (which I undoubtably will), I would rather err on the side of extending people grace and freedom. I would DEFINITELY rather err on the side of encouraging people to use their gifts than risk quenching the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives. I mean, we’re talking about people who want to MINISTER, not people looking for an excuse to engage in some sinful behavior.' She sounds like a kindred spirit!
update: Steve Holmes has a great review of this book on his blog.
