Scholarly, yet a great read! The 5 women in Matthew's genealogy of Jesus - their stories setting themes for the whole Gospel!11 June 2014
I would like to highly recommend this new book by E. Anne Clements. Crossing the divide between Old Testament and New Testament scholarship, and engaging with both, she provides a new take on the much debated question of why Matthew included five women in his genealogy of Jesus. Exploring closely each of the stories of Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, “she of Uriah”, and Mary, Clements draws out particular themes from each, which she then demonstrates as having been carried through Matthew's Gospel, along with an underlying counter narrative about women. Full of biblical scholarship, yet conveyed in an eminently accessible and readable style, this book will make an excellent resource, and a useful addition to the bookshelf of any theologian, preacher, or biblical student.

This is a really good book (and a model of how to publish a doctoral thesis). Its discussion of the place of the four women who appear in the genealogy of Jesus at the very start of Matthew's gospel - and at the very start of the New Testament - is illuminating. Her explanation of the Old Testament narratives where the four feature is interesting and well-done, and her conclusions both about the genealogy and about Matthew's gospel and Matthew's view of women are largely persuasive. It is a book engaging effectively with scholarship, and at the same time remarkably readable and accessible.
