Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A curious and frustrating book that, under the veil of liberal sociological analysis, deflects charges of theological sexism by projecting the sources of sexism into the cultural matrix of some vague pagan-agrarian never-never-land. As though the Church, as though Judeo-Christianity were only the object of culture and never a subject working its will through the world. Paper edition (327-5), $19.95. (RC) Annotation c.
