The Lost Coin is a collection of feminist interpretations of parables about women and women's work, as well as parables with female imagery. The authors form an interdisciplinary group including Pheme Perkins, Barbara Reid, and Adele Reinhartz. The 'women parables' have received little attention from biblical scholars - including feminist writers - despite their important role in early Christian interpretation. As well as filling a gap in the scholarly literature on parables, this volume also brings to life vignettes from ancient Mediterranean women's lives, and offers insights into the place of women in the ministry of Jesus, the early church, and Christian theology. It is a rich resource for scholarship, teaching and preaching.
