Grounded in the Body, in Time and Place, in Scripture:

Papers by Australian Women Scholars in the Evangelical Tradition
  • "One of the most inspiring books I have read in a long time … I cannot overstate the timeliness, quality, and importance of this book "

    Graham Joseph Hill, Principal and Director of Research, Stirling Theological College
  • "A feast for the soul, a thoroughly enjoyable read that will shape future conversations about women’s lives in Scripture and our modern world"

    Lynn H. Cohick, Provost and Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary
  • "Showcases profound and practical theology at its best. A rich and rewarding read."

    Brian Rosner, Principal of Ridley College, Australia

  • "A landmark collection … a great gift to the Australian church, and indeed to the wider nation"

    Meredith Lake, Author of The Bible in Australia: a cultural history

  • "Informed by lived reality ... Informative, stimulating, inspiring"

    Siu Fung Wu, Lecturer in New Testament Studies, Whitley College

  • "Directly addressing weighty topics with clarity and thoughtfulness while doing so in a refreshing and personal way"

    Christa McKirland, Lecturer in Systematic Theology, Carey Baptist College, Auckland
  • "An extraordinarily rich anthology of essays representing women’s voices on a broad range of topics ... it would be a mistake to think this volume was written solely for women or for Australians "

    Lucy Peppiatt, Principal, Westminster Theological Centre, UK

“In my bibliographies there are no women in the evangelical tradition, and no Australian women scholars.”

This unique volume addresses this gap, with eighteen biblically rich and academically rigorous chapters by established and emerging Australian women scholars in the evangelical tradition. Valuable for students and teachers across Bible, Theology, Ministry, and Practice subjects, and for anyone who enjoys reading, this book is an essential inclusion in any library!
