Women in Ministry, Bitsy and Thecla

As others have discussed, the topic of Thecla has arisen the the biblioblogosphere. The apocryphal acts of Paul and Thecla can be read here, with a grain of salt of course, but there is an underlying history here, in which Thecla was seen as a counterpart of Paul in early Christianity. In the 4th century fresco, Thecla is seen next to Paul in a teaching position. Obviously, women in the ministry was not a large question for some early Christians, especially given the prominence of women in the Gospels.

Bitsy has announced a book she had received, concerning Women in Ministry. I am looking forward to her thoughts about the book and the subject.
