Unmanly Men

Refigurations of Masculinity in Luke-Acts

Brittany E. Wilson

  • Expands feminist treatments of Luke-Acts by analyzing men through a gender-critical lens
  • Brings New Testament scholarship into conversation with a variety of other disciplines, including classical studies, gender studies, disability studies, and masculinity studies
  • Challenges assumptions held in both the academy and beyond that Jesus and his followers epitomize "manliness" and embody "muscular Christianity"
