Feminist Companion to John by Amy Levine


Feminist Companion to John by Amy Levine

The first of two volumes devoted to the Johannine literature. The contents include an introduction by the editor, F. Scott Spencer on 'You Just Don't Understand' (Or Do You?): Jesus, Women, and Conversation in the Fourth Gospel; Jennifer Berenson McLean on The Divine Trickster: A Tale of Two Weddings in John; Stephen Moore, Are There Impurities in the Living Water that the Johannine Jesus Dispenses? and Jerome Neyrey, What's Wrong with this Picture? John 4, Cultural Stereotypes of Women, and Public and Private Space.Jane Webster writes on Overcoming Difference: Strange Woman to Samaritan Woman; Mona West on The Raising of Lazarus: A Lesbian Coming Out Story; Holly Toensing on Divine Intervention or Divine Intrusion? Jesus and the Adultress in John's Gospel; and Ingrid Rosa Kitzberger on Transcending Gender Boundaries in John.


'Levine provides [an] attentive and judicious introduction, giving the collection well as pointing to occasional problems...All the essays are meticulously annotated, and the comprehensive bibliography offers access to other feminist and traditional work on John. This Feminist Companion, like earlier volumes, will be an important resource for courses on the Gospel and for further research.'
