Endorsements & Reviews-

"Dr. Carolyn Osiek has pursued a significant career as a pioneering woman scholar in a field formerly dominated by men. Lyn's perceptive work on The Shepherd of Hermas, the social study of ancient families, or women in the early Christian church has made a lasting contribution. This rich collection of essays, by many notable scholarly peers and former students, will both enlighten the reader and honor the many substantive contributions of Professor Osiek."
--Douglas Oakman
Pacific Lutheran University,

"This insightful and diverse collection of essays is a fitting tribute to a scholar and teacher who has contributed so much to our understanding of the social worlds and literatures of early Christianity. Carolyn Osiek has helped her colleagues and students to imagine--thoughtfully and precisely--ancient people and their daily lives. This book honours her by following her careful scholarly practice, opening up new questions and ideas to explore."
--Alicia Batten
University of Sudbury

"In a series of well-crafted essays that are provocative, captivating, challenging, and ground-breaking, this book addresses themes that long have fruitfully occupied the research agenda of Carolyn Osiek, R.S.C.J. In a diversified but coherent set of chapters, Roman visualization of feminine values, translation as performance, Matthew's God presiding over a cosmic household and the imperial depiction of the emperor as Father presiding over a nation, a man's place in the construction of gender, vengeance-seeking biblical widows, symposiac humor, early-church women, and early-church families, are effectively addressed. This marvelous collection deserves to be broadly read and frequently cited."
--Dietmar Neufe,
University of British Columbia
