“A first-rate introduction to the place of women in the earliest churches. With care and sensitivity to the ancient context, Nijay Gupta skillfully uncovers the stories of a range of female leaders, teachers, and missionaries, and highlights their relevance for today. If you think that only men held leadership roles in the first-century church, you need to read this book! Highly recommended for students and church groups alike.”
-Helen K. Bond, chair of Christian Origins and head of the School of Divinity at the University of Edinburgh
Tell Her Story is a well-researched and compelling book that provides an important corrective to the traditional narrative of women’s marginalization in the early Church. Gupta’s analysis is nuanced and complex, and he provides readers with a wealth of information and insights into the lives of women in early Christian communities. His book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the history of Christianity, the role of women in religion, or the ways in which social and cultural norms shape religious practice and belief.
