“A remarkable expedition, through an impressive range of intriguing topics and little-known ancient texts, mapping for us how this kind of historical work advances.”
Joel B. Green, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Fuller Theological Seminary, California

“A fantastic read... What Le Donne did so brilliantly for Jesus in his book Historical Jesus, he now does for Jesus' wife.”
April D. DeConick, Chair of the Religious Studies Department, Rice University, and author of Holy Misogyny: Why the Sex and Gender Conflicts of the Early Church Still Matter

"Anthony Le Donne balances strong scholarship with sensitivity as he lays out the possibilities in The Wife of Jesus: Ancient Texts and Modern Scandals (Oneworld, Nov.). This is an eminently readable book for nonspecialists and specialists alike that contributes to the discussion with clarity and candor even as it challenges readers to ask what it is about ourselves that we might learn from our curiosity and concern."
Publishers Weekly (Kristin Swenson, PhD)

The Wife of Jesus is now available in bookstores and on line.
