Product Description

Rethinking the Christian faith from a woman's perspective has been an important advancement in modern theology. In this book Natalie Watson introduces the methods, ideas, and contributions of recent feminist theology to readers encountering the subject for the first time. In keeping with the purpose of the Guides to Theology series, this volume is eminently clear and readable, specifically designed and written for newcomers to theology. Watson explores the historical background of feminist theology, discusses the value of reading scripture from a feminist perspective, and shows how this approach can offer a critical, creative, and constructive rereading of the Christian tradition. She also sets forth fresh ideas encouraging more people to see feminism not as a threat to the church but as a challenging perspective that actually enhances its life in today's world. An extensive annotated bibliography directs readers to the work of other well-known authors in the field. Clear, colorful, and concise, this book is an exceptional guide to feminist thought.
