Overview

Here is a book that will encourage and empower women preachers to preach as women, as feminist theologians and as those who will make a difference to the Church. It provides a step-by-step guide to approaching the Bible from a feminist standpoint with suggestions for how to develop your own voice as a preacher. Susan Durber gives advice on how to preach the lectionary, on how to find new angles on well-known texts and on how to challenge and recast well-established interpretations. To show how the theory works in practice she includes sample sermons from her own preaching. The book will inspire reluctant and tired preachers to seize an important challenge with new energy. "'This is a book which every woman preacher will value highly and from which every male preacher will learn a great deal. It succeeds in being at once fresh and sane, scholarly and lucid. Contrary to much contemporary opinion, Susan Durber still believes passionately in the preaching ministry and shows how women can use the text in a way that is both biblical and authentic. She also shows how it is possible to preach without the anti-Judaism that continues to disfigure far too many sermons. I highly recommend this book both for its general themes and the actual examples of sermons preached, which can also be useful for personal meditation.'" The Rt Revd Richard Harries, Lord Harries of Pentregarth, former Bishop of Oxford
