Description: With Empowering Memory and Movement, Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza completes a three-volume look across her influential work and career. In Transforming Vision (2011), she drew from decades of pioneering scholarship to offer the contours of a critical feminist hermeneutic. The chapters in Changing Horizons (2013) sketched out a theory of liberation. Now, the consequences for a liberating praxis are elaborated in interviews and essays that chart Schüssler Fiorenza’s own personal and professional history as these are intertwined with the history of the worldwide movement for emancipation and full equality. In Empowering Memory and Movement, Schüssler Fiorenza looks back, but also assesses current challenges and potentialities on the global scene, and envisions an emancipatory future, with critical and wise engagement with scripture and the interpretive tradition always at the center.
