Feminist Theologies: Legacy and Prospect
Ruether, Rosemary Radford, editor

Minneapolis: Fortress, 2007 pp. vii + 175. $20.00

Description: This volume and its illustrious contributors trace the rapidly evolving feminist theological scene over the last generation and highlight specific contributions that have been and are being made on many fronts. Celebrations of pioneering work in women's studies in religion at the Center for Women and Religion, Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, recently occasioned new reflection on the history and future of feminist theologies in many cultural and ethnic contexts around the world, including Asian, Hispanic, North American feminist, and womanist. Like the Center itself, this volume offers enlightening history, bracing analysis, and thoughtful proposals for the future of historical and theological disciplines. Although prominently Christian, the contributions also assay feminist initiatives from Judaism, Islam, and Buddhism. Along with editor Rosemary Ruether, contributors include Rita Nakashima Brock, Sandy Boucher, Peggy H. Cleveland, Pamela Cooper-White, Marcia Falk, Mary E. Hunt, Cheryl A. Kirk-Duggan, Stephanie Y. Mitchem, Nancy Pineda-Madrid, Nayereh Tohidi, Mary Evelyn Tucker.

Subjects: Methods, Ideological Critique, Feminist Approaches
