Editorial Reviews

Review

"A Feminist Ethic of Risk is not only a provocative and insightful book but also a very honest one, with an integrity that comes from the author's own experience as a white, middle-class woman who refuses to despair over defeats or escape into the luxury of the privileged. But most of all, it is a book of love and joy." -- - --Sallie McFague

More About the Author

Sharon Welch is Provost and Professor of Religion and Society at Meadville Lombard Theological School (Unitarian Universalist).



"I think of Welch as the best kind of activist/academic and consider her a role model," said Dr. Mary McClintock Fulkerson, Professor of Theology, Duke Divinity School. "Her recent focus on alternatives to the binary ways of thinking about morality and war/peace initiatives and her honest explorations of the amoral character of religion are truly exciting. That she refuses to romanticize religious traditions, even as she attends with utter seriousness to the possibilities for liberative and humane possibilities for global life give Welch a kind of realistic wisdom unusual for an academic."

You'll probably pick this book up because somebody else suggested it, and they'll naturally tell you what to expect. Be careful ! In my case, the expectation was for hard-hitting feminism, and I was completely unprepared for (the point of not seeing it at first) Welch's supple complexity.
