From Women's Experience to Feminist Theology / Edition 1

What are the implications of adopting a primacy-of-praxis position in feminist theology? How can we respect the diversity of women's experience while retaining it as a useful analytic category? Do these twin resources of women's experience and praxis together imply that feminist theology is ultimately relativist? Through an analysis of the work of some of today's key feminist theologians - Christian, Womanist and post-Christian-the author considers these and other central methodological questions. This work examines the origins and development of the categories of women's experience and praxis and argues that the adoption of these resources ought to result in a hermeneutic of difference and a reluctance to claim a normative theory for feminist theology.
