What a gift is this book! It gives us vintage Schussler Fiorenza - as generous in engagement as she is irascible; as much the disciplined listener as the take-no-prisoners debater; as much the bridge-builder and facilitator of conversation as the radical critic. As a window onto the work of a genuine public intellectual the collected essays, with their wide ranging topics that never float away from things that matter, will be for many for a long time insightful, disturbing, and challenging.
-Vincent L. Wimbush,
Claremont Graduate University
Schussler Fiorenza has often described the work of feminist theology and biblical interpretation as a spiraling dance. This book is such a dance, circling back to her earliest memories of childhood and theological training, while also moving forward into current scholarly debates, all the while intent on constructing a 'politics of memory' to nourish the future of feminist studies. Those who have followed Schussler Fiorenza's theoretically rich scholarship will appreciate here the integration of her auto/biographical reflections into that scholarship, as windows both into how this path-breaking scholar has been shaped by her culture and also her agency in resisting the dominant scripts of that culture.

Written with a vivid and intellectually exquisite language, this is a paradigmatic book that illustrates the power of both, articulating the intersection of autobiography and academic studies in politically subversive ways, and providing motivation to the women's struggles for human rights, justice, and well-being with the theoretical frameworks of a critical feminist analytic, hermeneutic, and theology of liberation.
-Maria Pilar Aquino,
University of San Diego
This is an exhilarating, energizing, and profoundly important book by one of the founding mothers of the feminist study of religion. Thirty-four essays, interweaving autobiographical reflections with feminist-theoretical, historical, hermeneutical, epistemological, pedagogical, exegetical, theological, and ethical analyses, demonstrate the huge difference one deeply committed and intellectually driven feminist scholar has made in academia during our life time. Schussler Fiorenza's personal and scholarly journey and her amazing intellectual accomplishments ought to encourage every feminist anywhere to keep on going despite the relentlessly persistent structures of domination not only in academia but also in the world.
