Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Hunt and Neu,co-founders and co-directors of the Womn''s Alliance for Theology, Ethics, and Ritual, invited the 25 contributors to "describe what the future of feminist Christianity looks like from their various starting points." Many began by looking backward, noting the progress that has been made toward greater equality in Christian teaching and practice, as well as the disappointments and challenges that women seeking a voice and part in Christian leadership still face. Because the essays are necessarily brief, they are strongest when the contributor's particular experience filtech historical reflection. Most mix the personal and predictive, and most arrive at predictable conclusions. The volume concentrates its attention on the United States, which seems myopic since Christianity burgeons in the global south. The book's American focus and the absence of any male voices incompletely address Christian feminism's future. Its rehearsal of familiar complaints and the repeated call by its contributors for creative integration of women's experience and leadership underscores their observation that work remains to be done.

"Some of the best and most cutting-edge thinking…. Calls upon us to do together the hard yet hopeful work of dismantling sexism and domination—both within and among us—so that God's earth and all who dwell upon it can be saved."
Rev. Loey Powell, executive for Administration & Women’s Justice, United Church of Christ

“Important and exciting…. A very banquet of ideas big enough to reinvigorate the life of the Spirit. More than that, it is a catalyst for the ongoing process of achieving it.”
Joan Chittister, OSB, co-chair, Global Peace Initiative of Women; author, Heart of Flesh: A Feminist Spirituality for Women and Men

“Living proof that feminism has shaken the Christian patriarchal mindset to its core…. A must read for anyone interested in the future of Christianity in the twenty-first century.”
Maureen Fiedler, host, Interfaith Voices; editor, Breaking Through the Stained Glass Ceiling: Women Religious Leaders in Their Own Words

“Demonstrates that feminist Christianity is far from monolithic; rather it is diverse, thoughtful, incisive, pastoral, prophetic and above all, deeply faithful.”
Emilie M. Townes, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of African American Religion and Theology, Yale University

“With smarts, wit, and tantalizing moral vision, feminist movers and shakers illustrate how transforming patriarchy, religiously as well as socially, requires 'changing the subject,’ both the ‘who’ that speaks (and is listened to) and the ‘what’ that’s spoken about…. Truly nourishing bread for the journey.”
Rev. Marvin M. Ellison, PhD, Willard S. Bass Professor of Christian Ethics, Bangor Theological Seminary; co-editor, Sexuality and the Sacred: Sources for Theological Reflection

“Both a rich, colorful sampler for those unfamiliar with feminist Christian work in the U.S. and an invitation to all of us to continue liberating Christianity from hegemonic ‘isms.’ This is a welcome resource for all who care about justice in the church and in the world.”
Rev. Dr. Rita Nakashima Brock, coauthor, Saving Paradise: How Christianity Traded Love of This World for Crucifixion and Empire and Casting Stones: Prostitution and Liberation in Asia and the United States

“What is new about New Feminist Christianity is the depth and breadth and scope—Diann Neu and Mary Hunt do not shy away from all the intersectionalities that feminism in the context of Christianity contains. The inclusion of such powerful, diverse voices that deal with body, art, and ministry, as well as rich crosscultural lenses, will make this a powerful, required text for anyone wanting to understand Christianity or feminism today!”
Rev. Nancy Wilson, moderator, Metropolitan Community Churches

“Too often in monogendered theology, male eyes looked through the wrong end of the telescope and saw a world writ small. In this volume, womanspirit that has long been rising comes of age, and Christianity is dynamically reimagined. This is the real, not the fictive, radical orthodoxy.”
Daniel C. Maguire, professor of religious ethics, Marquette University

“A rich mix of topics and perspectives that clearly conveys where feminist Christianity has been and where it needs to go.”
Judith Plaskow, author, Standing Again at Sinai: Judaism from a Feminist Perspective

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Greg Smith (aka sowhatfaith) on February 29, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
New Feminist Christianity is an anthology of third wave American Christian feminism featuring twenty-eight chapters each penned by a different contributor in keeping with the book's subtitle (Many Voices, Many Views). Contributors include women who are scholars teaching in the academy, ministers serving in churches, activists running centers, and administrators working in their denominations. The book is divided into five thematic parts:
Feminist Theological Visions
Feminist Scriptural Insights
Feminist Ethical Agendas
Feminist Liturgical and Artistic Frontiers
Feminist Ministerial Challenge

The essays range in length from seven to sixteen pages and allow each author to share part of her story as well as her hopes for the future of Christian feminism. For those not familiar with such a diverse group of writers, the editors include brief biographical sketches of each contributor.

Format: Hardcover
In the past century, feminism has risen harder than ever. "New Feminist Christianity: Many Voices, Many Views" discusses feminism and what it means to be both a feminist and a Christian. Many women converge in this volume to give their own thoughts and opinions on scripture, clergy, ethics and the feminist agenda in regards to the Church, and so much more. A thoughtful and scholarly study, "New Feminist Christianity" is a solid compendium on the issue, very highly recommended.
