These essays in honor of Elizabeth Schussler Fiorenza draw on international feminist scholarship indebted to her ground-breaking achievements. The body of her work up to now ensures her a prominent place in the history and the future of biblical studies, feminist thought, ecumenical studies, and revitalization movements worldwide. That prominence can only grow: in biblical studies when gender and kyriarchal analysis in not as marginal as it is today in many quarters; in feminist studies in general, when the subject of religion is once more central and of interest to a wide audience, and when gender analysis is expanded to include the intertwined structures of domination; in ecumenical studies, when the focus and concerted effort to address issues of Christian anti-Judiasm and to deal with gender issues in fundamentalism become a standard; in revitalization movements, when education in her seven steps of a critical theory of interpretation is even more widely expanded.
These essays in honor of Professor Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza come from international feminist scholars indebted to her ground-breaking achievements in the areas of biblical studies, feminist thought and social justice. The contributors represent a wide variety of backgrounds, commitments, methodologies, talents and interests. They are united here by their appreciation for Schussler Fiorenza as a scholar, teacher, mentor, colleague and friend. The spectrum is full of vitality, with important convergences and intersections. It exemplifies what Schussler Fiorenza has called 'critical collaboration': women thinking together and creating together. This Festschrift is unique in that it celebrates the work of women in the field. On the Cutting Edge is indexed in H.W. Wilson's Essay and General Literature Index.
