Christian Women in the Patristic World:
Their Influence, Authority, and Legacy in the Second through Fifth Centuries

by Lynn Cohick and Amy Brown Hughes

Website »

From facing wild beasts in the arena to governing the Roman Empire, Christian women--as preachers and philosophers, martyrs and empresses, virgins and mothers--influenced the shape of the church in its formative centuries.

Christian Women in the Patristic World provides in a single volume a nearly complete compendium of extant evidence about Christian women in the second through fifth centuries. Through a careful examination of literary and material evidence, the book highlights the social and theological contributions women made to shaping early Christian beliefs and practices, integrating their influence into the history of the patristic church and showing how their achievements can be edifying for contemporary Christians.

In my commentary I explore Paul’s “good news” to the church in Philippi, and its words of comfort, encouragement and exhortation to the church today.

Each section of Paul’s argument is carefully analyzed, and I spend about a third of each chapter exploring practical ways that God’s people down through the ages and around the world today have lived the text faithfully.
