Summary: 

In a survey of canonical writings, traditional beliefs and popular religious practices, Diane Peters reveals the Martha of Bethany who has been hidden behind centuries of storytelling and artwork designed to make an example of her. Peters sleuths her way through history to present Martha as a gospel witness, a woman of faith, a disciple of Jesus and a woman of action: a missionary. She also explores the Martha of apocryphal and Gnostic literature, and her activities recorded in legend as a preacher, evangelist and spiritual leader.
