Explore the significance of maternal metaphors in the writings of a first-century male missionary and theologianPaul employed metaphors of childbirth or breastfeeding in four out of the seven undisputed epistles. In this book, McNeel uses cognitive metaphor theory and social identity analysis to examine the meaning and function of these maternal metaphors.
