In the world that created the Bible, there were no female scholars and theologians, yet in the past four decades, owing to such stunning discoveries as the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi texts, as well as advances in historical understanding and the rise of feminism, a generation of scholars has found new ways to interpret the Scriptures and the societies that created them -- exploring avenues traditionally ignored by male-dominated religious study. Surveying the new scholarship and the personalities of those who have created it, The Word According to Eve not only explores afresh the history of our religions but offers exciting new challenges to our sense of worship.

Littlemore College is in a picturesque village just outside Oxford. Its calm surroundings have seen generations of aspirant priests pray and train. As far the outside world is concerned, human passions are restrained by devotion to a higher calling. But this is the 1990s and women are training for priesthood for the very first time and passions are running high and at Littlemore College's enclosed and febrile heart a small group of brilliant young ordinands, the favoured students of the charismatic and controversial Medievalist, Professor Albertus Loewe are asking themselves some very dangerous questions indeed. When Catherine Bolton arrives with her freshly-minted doctorate on Chaucer and the Church, Dr Loewe and his secretive group of students represents an irresistible challenge to her and her new friend Evie Kirkland. But just as Evie is not quite the friend she seems to be, so too the medieval passions of Dr Loewe's group are more far reaching and intense than she could ever have imagined.

The Gospel According to Twilight

The Gospel According to Twilight

This book offers both a feminist critique of Twilight and a theological review of the stories' ideas about salvation, heaven and hell, power, reconciliation, resurrection, and organized religion.

The Twilight saga has become one of the most successful fiction series ever written, with more than one hundred million copies in print and several blockbuster films. Despite the tremendous commercial success Twilight has generated, few readers have analyzed its theological teachings or the messages Stephenie Meyer might be sending to women and teenage girls. This book offers both a feminist critique of Twilight and a theological review of the stories' ideas about salvation, heaven and hell, power, reconciliation, resurrection, and organized religion. Elaine Heath writes in an accessible voice, calling attention to both the "good news" of Twilight's theology and the "bad news" of its gender stereotypes and depictions of violence against women. The book includes questions for youth and adult groups or for classroom discussions.

Further, if the question is asked why it was from the side rather than from any
other member that the Lord is said to have caused water and blood to issue, I
think that the woman [Eve] is indicated in the side through the rib (Gen. ii. 21, 22).

The Gospel According to St Judas

The Gospel According to St Judas

And what if fragments of the manuscript were found in what is now Iraq, on the eve of the Western invasion in 2003? There are two distinct narrative voices in the novel, THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ST JUDAS.

Judas is hardly mentioned in the Bible. There are even two versions of his death. Essentially, he is a cipher for all things bad rather than a person. But what if his real role was altogether more significant? What if he was nothing less than the writer of the earliest gospel? And what if fragments of the manuscript were found in what is now Iraq, on the eve of the Western invasion in 2003? There are two distinct narrative voices in the novel, THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ST JUDAS. One is a first-person account of Judas' life from childhood to dotage. It tells of his boyhood friendship with Jesus, of his difficult younger days, how he becomes a disciple of first John the Baptist and then Jesus and finally ends up as a rich merchant in Mesopotamia. It is there he writes the first gospel. The other voice belongs to Dr Murray Watkins, a biblical scholar and finder of 'the Judas d104s' in early 21st Century Iraq, shortly before the invasion of that country. Through a series of "essays" he tells of the finding of the texts, of what they tell us and of the significance of this find.

This book takes a look at the Latter-day Saint traditions surrounding the introduction of the Gospel to Adam and Eve using the scriptures as a source rather than opinion, tradition, and interpretation. Many assume that Eve partook of the Forbidden Fruit to have children and because she understood the Gospel Plan. Scripture teaches differently. The second part takes a scriptural look at the issues surrounding Cain and Abel and the priesthood restrictions and reasons why the Declaration of 1978 was as fulfillment of prophecy rather than pressure.
