"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
