"I thoroughly enjoyed Women of the Passion. It is beautifully written and catches the character of women and men whose names were previously the only thing I knew about them. I felt myself back in those frightening times for Christians. I never had a sense of that before."
Jack Dobbyn, novelist
Author of The Neon Dragon and Frame Up
"Women of the Passion is a religious thriller. It is a social history in the sense that it describes the roles of the characters and the dynamics of the women’s participation in the Jesus Movement. Best of all, it is a page turner."
Women’s Studies Professor and sociologist
"In Women of the Passion, Joan Lynch brings to life a pivotal era in world history. This novel is filled with suspense, intrigue, and fascinating details of conditions in Jerusalem in the first century."
