'Levine provides [an] attentive and judicious introduction, giving the collection shape...as well as pointing to occasional problems...All the essays are meticulously annotated, and the comprehensive bibliography offers access to other feminist and traditional work on John. This Feminist Companion, like earlier volumes, will be an important resource for courses on the Gospel and for further research.' Mary Rose D'Angelo, RBL, 10/2006--Sanford Lakoff "Rbl "
