Endorsements & Reviews-

"Satoko Yamaguchi has written an excellent, even groundbreaking work . . . . This book provides a new reading of the stories of Mary and Martha in the Gospel of John, and also makes an important contribution to understanding Johannine studies, particularly the Christology of that gospel."
--Joanna Dewey, Academic Dean, Episcopal Divinity School

"This books presents and engaging new reading of the Gospel of John from a critical feminist perspective. Satoko Yamaguchi persuasively argues for a new historical imagination. A clear style of argumentation makes this an excellent text for courses in Biblical and Women's Studies."
--Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza, Harvard Divinity School

"It is such a revisioning of early Christian women which Yamaguchi suggests will expand the historical imagination of contemporary readers of the gospel in a way which can shape new spiritualities and identities for today's Christian women (and men). Yamaguchi hopes to reach the first-time readers of feminist biblical interpretation with her text and for them this work will offer a very rich fare. For those already familiar with the field, Mary and Martha will be a re-immersion and an expansion of imagination especially in relation to the two focal women -- Mary and Martha of the Johannine Gospel."
--Elaine Wainwright, The University of Auckland School of Theology

"I highly recommend this readable and informative text."
--Kwok Pui-lan, Episcopal Divinity School
