Product Description

The challenge of promoting the "new feminism" has barely been taken up since it was first launched by Pope John Paul II in his 1995 encyclical Evangelism vitae. The thirteen contributors to this book, all outstanding international scholars, take up this task, together laying the necessary theoretical foundation for the new feminism.

These chapters articulate an integral philosophical and theological understanding of persons that moves beyond patriarchy on the one hand and traditional feminism on the other. Central to the new perspective offered here is the biblical revelation of the human person--man and woman --in Christ, a vision that directs women beyond the "male" standard against which they have too often been measured. Far from constraining women to an "eternal essence," the dynamic view presented here encourages each woman to realize herself in perfect Christian freedom.
