I am excited to announce that I have signed a contract to write a volume on Philippians and Philemon for the New Testament Library series (Westminster John Knox).

I have long appreciated the NTL series, going back to Brevard Childs’ classic Exodus commentary, to NT volumes like Marianne Meye Thompson’s John and Luke Timothy Johnson’s Hebrews. (And I am especially looking forward to... Read more

This book focuses on the named women leaders of the earliest churches of the apostolic period. When we talk about “women in ministry,” we often engage in the abstract (“Can women do this or that?”).
