Christianity--indeed every contemporary religion--has suffered from the effect of being written, interpreted and conveyed, by and large, by men. Prostitutes, Virgins and Mothers challenges traditional interpretations of select women of the Bible - interpretations that have been used to dishonor females, discredit their importance in the Christian community and limit their participation in religious groups. Backed by extensive research and told in engaging prose, Prostitutes, Virgins and Mothers imaginatively retells these women’s narratives, shepherding readers toward a greater understanding of the original author’s intent, the geographical location of the story and the culture of the time.
