Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza is the most influential feminist New Testament scholar alive. Her work reconstructing the purported egalitarian origins of Christianity has exercised a widespread influence in the academy.
Esther Ng’s book is the most detailed analysis of Fiorenza’s historical reconstruction available. Ng offers a fair-minded but critical analysis of Fiorenza’s work, examining her presuppositions and historical methodology, as well as the evidence adduced to support her thesis. Ng’s rigorous analysis highlights serious problems with Fiorenza’s reconstruction of Christian origins and is indispensible reading for anyone interested in the place of women in earliest Christianity.
