Friday Book Giveaway

This week's giveaway is from Osiek, MacDonald and Tulloch.  A Woman's Place: House Churches in Earliest Christianity (Fortress: 2006).

Here's the blurb:

This focused look at women in the household context discusses the importance of issues of space and visibility in shaping the lives of early Christian women. Several aspects of women's everyday existence are investigated, including the lives of wives, widows, women with children, female slaves, women as patrons, household leaders, and teachers. In addition, several key themes emerge: hospitality, dining practices, and the extent of female segregation.


Place your name below if you want to win and I will choose a winner on Sunday. Remember, the winner has five days to claim the prize.
