Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Feminism has brought many changes to the Christian church. From inclusive language and imagery about the Divine, to an increase in the numbers of women ministers, churches will never be the same. Yet, even now, there is a lack of substantive structural change in many churches and a certain complacency within denominations. The contributors to this book are the thought leaders of the future who are shaping, and being shaped by, the emerging directions of feminist Christianity. They speak from across the Christian spectrum, and from the many racial and ethnic groups that make up the Christian community. Taken together, their voices offer a starting point for revitalizing the field of feminist Christianity, rekindling some of the early enthusiasm, and grounding new directions.

Issues covered include:

Feminist Theological Visions

Feminist Scriptural Insights

Feminist Ethical Agendas

Feminist Liturgical Frontiers

Feminist Ministerial Challenges

A must-read for anyone in Chris

Review:

"Hunt and Neu,co-founders and co-directors of the Womn''s Alliance for Theology, Ethics, and Ritual, invited the 25 contributors to 'describe what the future of feminist Christianity looks like from their various starting points.' Many began by looking backward, noting the progress that has been made toward greater equality in Christian teaching and practice, as well as the disappointments and challenges that women seeking a voice and part in Christian leadership still face. Because the essays are necessarily brief, they are strongest when the contributor's particular experience filtech historical reflection. Most mix the personal and predictive, and most arrive at predictable conclusions. The volume concentrates its attention on the United States, which seems myopic since Christianity burgeons in the global south. The book's American focus and the absence of any male voices incompletely address Christian feminism's future. Its rehearsal of familiar complaints and the repeated call by its contributors for creative integration of women's experience and leadership underscores their observation that work remains to be done.
