It is a rich resource for scholarship, teaching and preaching.Contributors include the editor, Elisabeth Schnssler Fiorenza, Linda Maloney, Kathleen Nash, Pheme Perkins, Barbara Reid, Kathleen Rushton, Holly Hearon, and Adele Reinhartz. Topics include feminist readings of the Parable of the Persistent Widow, the ôWise and Foolish Virgins,ö the Prodigal Son, the Faithful Steward, and the ôBrideö in John 3.
