"I love this new study on Women in the New Testament from Little Rock Scripture Study! The cultural background, archaeological information, and extra details like the chart of all the 'Marys' in the New Testament are wonderful! The questions at the end of each lesson are well-written and help us reflect on what we’ve learned. And I especially like the author’s questions found throughout the commentary as they help us be 'in the moment' as we are reading and learning. I can’t wait to see how others in our diocesan women’s ministry respond to this study!"
Leigh Tenkku Lepper, Facilitator, Women’s Ministry Coalition, Diocese of Jefferson City

"A holistic Christian spirituality means being attuned to the many ways women not only received but also clarified, amplified, and participated in Jesus’ ministry. Catherine A. Cory and the able team at Little Rock Scripture Study take us inside the lives of the women of the New Testament, using sound methods of biblical scholarship to set them in their proper social, historical, and cultural contexts. As we gather these 'gems along the path of study,' we experience anew Jesus’ call for radical inclusion—and just how necessary it is for us to emulate it today."
Michael Centore, Editor, Today’s American Catholic
