Product Description

In The Strength of the Weak, Dorothee Soelle treats a wide range of issues relating to religion and public life, politics and personal identity, feminism, and liberation theology. Divided into two sections, the first half of the book centers on issues of faith and society, while the second examines the foundations of a feminist theology. Although the writings included in the volume are gathered from diverse sources addressing different audiences, they collectively represent helpful challenges to traditional means of thinking, speaking, and acting, which enact dehumanizing effects upon women and men alike.

Publisher's Description

Bringing together issues of religion and life, politics and personal identity, feminism and liberation theology, Dorothee Soelle presents a powerful critique of modern society, striking at dehumanizing elements that combine to oppress both women and men. Over the years, Soelle had challenged European and American readers with incisive commentary on a variety of social, ethical, literary, and theological topics. This work embodies the constant drive to radicalization and the passionate involvement that have always been the hallmark of her writing.
