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.

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.

1 of 1 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.
