“An extraordinary accomplishment. … A definitive source for all future discussion of homoeroticism and the Bible.” — Mary Rose D’Angelo

“[Brooten’s] convincing analysis … not only profoundly reshapes our understanding of the past, but it should also shape the way in which that past, particularly the early Christian texts with their immense normative weight, will be used for the future.” — Anne L. Clark
