Most widely held works by Elaine Mary Wainwright
The Bible in/and popular culture : a creative encounter ( Book )
14 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 384 libraries worldwide
In popular culture, the Bible is generally associated with films: The Passion of the Christ, The Ten Commandments, Jesus of Montreal, and many others. Less attention has been given to the relationship between the Bible and other popular media such as hip-hop, reggae, rock, and country and western music; popular and graphic novels; animated television series; and apocalyptic fantasy. This collection of essays explores a range of media and the way the Bible features in them, applying various hermeneutical approaches, engaging with critical theory, and providing conceptual resources and examples of how the Bible reads popular culture and how popular culture reads the Bible. --From publisher's description

Women healing/healing women : the genderization of healing in early Christianity by Elaine Mary Wainwright( Book )
15 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 201 libraries worldwide
The impetus for this book was the startling realization that within early Christianity, which is characterized by healing, no women are explicitly commissioned to heal. The work begins with a search for the women who were healers in the Graeco-Roman world of the late Hellenistic and early Roman period, finding them honoured in inscriptions, named by medical writers, and stereotyped by playwrights and other literateurs. What emerges by the first century of the Common Era, is a world in which women functioned as healers as well as healed and that healing was a site of contestation in relation to
Human trafficking ( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 192 libraries worldwide
" ... This issue of 'Concilium' tries to break the wall of silence around trafficking that accompanies the wave of globalized trade and migration. The fight against trafficking has begun, and 'Concilium' wishes to look at governmental, transnational, and non-governmental initiatives that work to combat one of the most extreme forms of exploitation that emerged in the current economic system."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Gender in theology, spirituality and practice ( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 191 libraries worldwide
Spirit possession, theology, and identity : a Pacific exploration ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 75 libraries worldwide
The growing contemporary interest in spirit possession prompted eleven past and present faculty members of The University of Auckland's School of Theology along with two of the School's recent post-graduate students to offer essays that in some way explored the reality of spirit possession in Oceania today. Authors were chosen because of their particular research teaching or ministry competencies, and this explains the division of the book into three sections. The first section draws on the experiences of those engaged in pastoral ministry with people who believe they are possessed or those whose particular research interests are the relationship of faith culture and praxis. In the second section, the function and place of spirit language in the biblical texts is examined, while the last section's focus is somewhat broader, addressing some of the historical responses to spirit possession, as well as emerging pneumatologies of good and bad spirits and their impact on the human condition

The Gospel according to Matthew : the basileia of the heavens is near at hand by Elaine Mary Wainwright( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
Central in the Gospel of Matthew is the proclamation that 'the kingdom, or empire (basileia), of the heavens has come near'. Today, with the rise of Empire Studies and a growing interest in postcolonial hermeneutics we are better placed than ever to appreciate what basileia signifies. Recent decades have seen significant shifts in biblical scholarship opening up a range of ways of engaging the biblical narrative- both methodologically (the tools and techniques for engaging the text) and hermeneutically (the perspectives that inform an interpreter's approach to the text and to the interpretative task). It is these shifts that give shape to this volume so that readers encounter not only the text of Matthew itself but also its rich lode of recent interpretation. Among aspects of first-century life brought to the fore by current social-scientific methodology are kinship, the honor and shame culture, and masculinity. Gender is another interpretative lens that has characterized the study of the Gospel of Matthew in recent decades and the Guide provides pathways through this rich literature. The Guide to Matthew concludes with the most recent turn of the hermeneutical lens, namely an ecological perspective on what is perhaps the best-known text in Matthew, the Beatitudes. This final chapter is an example of how we can enter an old and familiar text like the Gospel of Matthew from yet another new critical direction
