Unmanly Men

Refigurations of Masculinity in Luke-Acts

Brittany E. Wilson

  • SBL national and regional
  • One of the first book-length studies of masculinity in Luke-Acts as a whole
  • Brings New Testament scholarship into conversation with a variety of other disciplines, including gender studies, disability studies, and masculinity studies.
  • Expands feminist treatments of Luke-Acts by including an analysis of men through a gender-critical lens.
  • Questions widespread assumptions concerning Luke's so-called accommodation to elite ideals.
  • Challenges assumptions held in both academic and non-academic circles that Jesus epitomizes "manliness."
