From the Publisher"Carmody aims for constructive theology - a theology which makesuse of its sources, traditional Christianity and feminism, topresent Christian theology as a relevant voice in our time...Carmody's book is certainly an important contribution to the genreof undergraduate textbooks. It shifts feminist theology from itsmarginal position of being an optional extra, an academic luxury ora side interest of mainly female theologicans, to being anessential part of mainstream theology, an important tool forre-reading and making sense of the Christian tradition. Carmody'sbook is not one of ready-made answers, but the author introducesher reader to critical and constructive theological thinking,presented in accessible language. As such the book represents botha challenge and a useful tool, and will hopefully find its way onto reading lists in universities and colleges.
It's for anyone interested in a basic understanding of a Christianfeminist theology and critical thought - for those with notheological background." Feminist Bookstore News
"Carmody's style is fluid and sweeping, engaging in its lyricism.... Carmody's approach is balanced and judicious, equally adept atcritiquing secular feminism and the oppressive record of theChristian churches toward women." Francis J. Buckley, Universityof San Francisco for Horizons
