Product Description

William Placher confronts challenging questions: Does a theology with a male savior inevitably contribute to the oppression of women? Does a theology with a suffering savior valorize suffering in a way that only makes it likely to continue? Is a theology that identifies one human figure as the self-revelation of God, the unique savior, somehow intrinsically unfair to and oppressive of adherents of other religous traditions? Placher also deals with the issue of how the Christian community should function in contemporary American society and the academic world.
