Janet Walton provides a helpful and insightful overview and guide to the relatively new area of feminist liturgy. . . . This is a well written and significant contribution to American Essays in Liturgy.
For Janet Walton, everything matters - not only the unapologetic communication of principles of feminist ritualizing but also the manner in which she communicates. With characteristic openness and clarity, she invites the reader to explore with her the history and vitality of feminist liturgies. In so doing, she invites us all to contribute to the renewal of rites, both institutional and feminist, in ways that allow all worship to be more truthful and just.

. . . a treasure: an accessible, engaging, and thought-provoking invitation to the questioning reader to explore the meaning and possibilities offered Christian worship by the practices of feminist liturgy. Rich in both insight and example, this book will open new vistas to those unfamiliar with feminist liturgy and offer inspiration and gentle guidance to those who are ready to try it.
