"A calm, well-balanced, carefully prepared book. . . . Excellent for adult Bible discussion groups, for occasional sermons, for suggesting ways of inclusive language. This book teaches and directs without antagonizing."
--The Bible Today
"A persuasive book, useful for personal reflection and group discussion, and ideal for gift-giving."
--Daughters of Sarah
"This is no dry erudite volume. It rubs salve in personal wounds inflicted by centuries of biblical misreading."
"The book reflects careful research; it is written in a style that will appeal to those interested in the implications of biblical research but without the time or inclination to follow the involved discussions of biblical scholarship."
--National Catholic Reporter
