Format: Paperback
This text by Mary Malone is the third volume in a series on women in Christianity; the first volume covers the first thousand years of Christendom, and the second from the year 1000 to the Reformation. This volume covers the period from the Reformation to the present, and as Malone states in her introduction, 'the increasing visibility of women on the ecclesial and cultural scenes...adds a new complexity' to the task of the book. There are women in Catholic and Protestant circles who are household names and those who are relatively unknown, yet important for various historical reasons. Sometimes, as Malone notes, the better-known figures are not necessarily easier to analyse, given the various traditions and ideas that have grown up around their personae, rather than their actual personal histories.

Like many historians of late, Malone sees the period commonly referred to as 'the Reformation' rather as a series of reformations. She notes the irony that this period created for the role of women, both redefining their relationship to men and the general cultural, but also providing direct biblical justification (in many interpretations) for keeping women in subordinate and out of leadership positions, particularly in the churches. This kind of paradox is seen more clearly in nations where women were in leadership positions - the role of Elizabeth I as ruler in England created a tension in the way to view women's roles; the irony continued to the late twentieth century, where the female Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and the reigning monarch, the second Queen Elizabeth, were responsible for appointing the bishops in the Church of England, who by church law could only be male.

First, Malone looks at issue of continuity and change.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Given Mr. Erfurt's detailed review, there is not much to say about the content of the book itself. I had this as a supplementary text on Christianity since the Reformation, and it was an excellent complement to Justo Gonzales' history. Oddly enough, I would rate it more highly for a person to read on their own instead of a text for a graduate level course.

I agree with Mr. Erfurt that the Index should have been more complete. There was no reference to things such as Pentecostalism, which made big strides in having women and men, white and blacks in on an equal basis. I also found some misspellings in the Index, as when Daphne Hampson's last name was spelled "Hamson". Fortunately, the page reference did direct me to "Hampson". I will also agree with Mr. Erfurt on the Bibliography. It is good, but not "great".

This book is good for the lay reader, as it is quite easy to read and it is not overly encumbered with footnotes. This same characteristic makes it less suitable as a text. I often found statements for which there is no documentation / notes on who made the statement and in what work. It is not that I distrust the author, it is just that I would like to get more details on some statements, and the author provides no connections. If you wish to do research on this subject, this book may be a bit thin on help. But, if you know nothing about the subject at all, its a quite decent start.

For the sake of my Moravian friends, yes, the Moravians are mentioned in one sentence on page 38.
