"The book is a must for students of the early church...Her solid treatment of this rich topic should prove to be a challenge and a treasure to Christians of widely divergent interests: feminists and their critics, charismatics and their critics, advocates of particular loci of religious authority and their critics. Montanism could engage the attention and imagination of all these and more." Rebecca Harden Weaver, Interpretation "Trevett's book is a welcome addition to an understudied area."
