Editorial Reviews

Review

"I am tremendously impressed by Sarah Coakley's book. It makes a bridge between the naive prephilosophical version of crucial beliefs and current work on feminist theology which is very arcane to the outsider. Sarah's clarity of expression and her tough style of argument are a delight. It is wonderful how well these separate essays follow on one another and have so much continuity." Mary Douglas <!--end-->

"In this set of extraordinarily erudite essays Sarah Coakley shows us that not only is Christian feminism crucial for constructive Christian theology in our day, but equally important Christian feminism can and does make a contribution to non-Christian feminist thought. In Powers and Submissions Coakley draws on the riches of the Christian tradition as well as contemporary theology to challenge the tendency in modern theology to separate theology and prayer. What a wonderful book. " Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University

"Such an intense and often understated vision - rich, subtle, and refreshing in its integrity- makes this a most unusual and very welcome book." Michael Barnes, The Way

"There is a real delicacy of interpretation in these essays which takes its lead from a present problematic, but which allows itself and its own terms to be questioned by what is found in pre-modern material." Theology

"Spanning theology, philosophy of religion, and feminist theory, Coakley's essays have import for scholars and advanced students in all three areas." Religious Studies Review

"Such an intense and often understated vision - rich, subtle, and refreshing in its integrity - makes this a most unusual and very welcome book." The Way

"...Coakley's work is exemplarily dialogue. Indeed, the abiding impression is of a brilliant and magnanimous hostess who is given to bring together the sort of people who would not ordinarily have anything to do with each other. Like an ideal hostess, she listens generously to each and tries to construe what they say in the best possible light, but she has strong and clear views of her own, which she ultimately articulates with considerable persusive authority." Khaled Anatolios, Weston Jesuit School of Theology

"Anyone interested in genuine dialogue between the Christian theological and spiritual traditions and contemporary concerns will find this collection to be stimulating and very rewarding reading." Khaled Anatolios, Weston Jesuit School of Theology

Book Description

In this book Sarah Coakley confronts a central paradox of theological feminism - what she terms "the paradox of power and vulnerability".

Interesting. Europeans have a different way of looking into concepts. Worth reading.

Sarah Coakley is in the front rank of today's theological commentators.
