Junia is not alone by Scot McKnight (2011). eBook. Patheos Press.

This short, simple and enjoyable ebook takes the example of Junia, the apostle mentioned by Paul in Romans 16:7, to speak out on behalf of many women whose voices have been silenced throughout church history. Relaying the history of how Junia was translated out of existence in the early part of the 20th century, McKnight tells Junia’s story in this easy-to-read book, seeking also to emphasize and celebrate the many gifted, passionate women whose stories are told elsewhere in the BIble.

This book is ‘dedicated to ending the church’s deafining silence on women in the Bible… to giving voice to women.’ McKnight issues a challenge to the church to teach the stories of the women in the Bible – not just Mary, but Deborah,  Phoebe, Priscilla, Miriam, Ruth, Esther and Huldah – so that the voices and actions of these sisters can encourage all believers about the role of women in the church.

Junia is not alone is available for Kindle for only $2.99 here and you can also download a copy to read on your PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone by installing the reading app here.

Over the next couple of months we will post a series of articles that were published in the Covenant Quarterly back in 1976. Today’s post, was written by Klyne Snodgrass, who, back then, was assistant professor at North Park Theological Seminary. He is now the Paul W. Brandel Professor of New Testament Studies at North Park Theological Seminary and has been a consistent voice outlining the scriptural case for women in leadership in the church. This article discusses key scriptural references in Paul’s writings to the congregations.  How does this 1976 article resonate with you today?
