This volume gathers the writings of 31 nineteenth century women on the stories of women in the Gospels. Recovering and analysing neglected works by Christina Rossetti, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Elizabeth Wordsworth, and many others, Women in the Story of Jesus illuminates the biblical text, recovers an overlooked chapter of reception history, and helps us understand and apply Scripture in our present context. Each chapter focuses on a different biblical woman and includes the various genres that nineteenth-century women used to write about women in the Gospels - commentaries, Scripture biographies, essays, travel diaries, children's lessons, and sermons. Editors Marion Ann Taylor and Heather E. Weir provide both a general introduction to each chapter and a short introduction to each individual excerpt that discusses the author and the larger work from which the excerpt is taken.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Joy A. Schroeder
-- author of Deborah's Daughters: Gender Politics and Biblical Interpretation
-In this superb anthology we hear from a veritable cloud of witnesses: women preachers, educators, biblical commentators, suffragists, social activists, novelists, and poets. These female biblical interpreters--most of them previously overlooked by scholars--can now be restored to their rightful place in the history of New Testament interpretation.-

Kristin Kobes Du Mez
-- author of A New Gospel for Women
-A treasury of writings by women, on women, and frequently for women, this carefully researched collection provides a valuable addition to the growing field of scholarship examining how women have read and interpreted the Bible. Going beyond mere recovery, this volume engages in the long overdue project of analysis and integration. Biblical scholars, historians, scholars of reception history, clergy, and general readers alike will find this book engaging and illuminating.-
