Sexism and God-Talkby Rosemary Ra Ruether
Synopses & Reviews
How did a religion whose founding proponents advocated a shocking disregard of earthly ties come to extol the virtues of the "traditional" family? In this richly textured history of the relationship between Christianity and the family Rosemary Radford Ruether traces the development of these centerpieces of modern life to reveal the misconceptions at the heart of the "family values" debate.

Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
By the time Ruether finishes, systematic theology has undergone a radical critique from which it emerges transformed rather than simply modified or totally rejected. She has constructed a full-fledged feminist theology-the first within a Christian context. --The New York Times Book Review
Includes bibliographical references (p. 267-285) and index.
