Bodies, Lives, Voices: Gender in Theology
1998 (Reprinted 2016)
Sheffield Academic Press; Bloomsbury
Bodies, Lives, Voices, a project at the critical juncture of feminism and religious studies, participates in the vibrant tradition of the feminist anthology. This volume is part of a broad feminist discourse that continues to grow less monolithic and more varied in material and style with each passing year.
The papers are divided into three main sections: "Bodies" examines the representation of women in sacred texts and theologies. "Lives" explores the fundamental need to return to women their history. "Voices" weaves together canonical texts with contemporary feminist theory in order to address anew age-old philosophical and theological problems. Together, the essays collected here share a concern for enriching and transforming traditional representations of women's religious lives.
