From the Publisher"Carmody aims for constructive theology - a theology which makes use of its sources, traditional Christianity and feminism, to present Christian theology as a relevant voice in our time... Carmody's book is certainly an important contribution to the genre of undergraduate textbooks. It shifts feminist theology from its marginal position of being an optional extra, an academic luxury or a side interest of mainly female theologicans, to being an essential part of mainstream theology, an important tool for re-reading and making sense of the Christian tradition. Carmody's book is not one of ready-made answers, but the author introduces her reader to critical and constructive theological thinking, presented in accessible language. As such the book represents both a challenge and a useful tool, and will hopefully find its way on to reading lists in universities and colleges.
It's for anyone interested in a basic understanding of a Christian feminist theology and critical thought - for those with no theological background." Feminist Bookstore News
"Carmody's style is fluid and sweeping, engaging in its lyricism .... Carmody's approach is balanced and judicious, equally adept at critiquing secular feminism and the oppressive record of the Christian churches toward women." Francis J. Buckley, University of San Francisco for Horizons
