Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Instructors and seekers who slough in the fields of women studies and religion, desperate for a single survey text, will gratefully embrace this recent comprehensive work. Lindley (religion, St. Olaf Coll.) has undertaken the daunting task of presenting a cohesive review of women and religion against the backdrop of American history. Highlighting the instances of women inappropriately stepping out of their assigned places, she emphasizes the efforts (successful or not) of the historically unvoiced, including women of color and non-Christian heritage. Utilizing a plain, straightforward voice, Lindley steers clear of heavy academic oratory and is successful in her quest to "present the diversity of their voices with integrity." Her critical analysis, while neither deep nor extensive, should provide fodder for classroom discussion. Recommended for women's history and religion collections.?Sandra Collins, SLIS, Univ. of Pittsburgh

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Tethys VINE VOICE on August 23, 2005
Format: Paperback
This book is a great overview of women, religion and social change in NORTH America. But I felt that it did not sufficiently cover Native American religous traditions, which is a significant component of our history.

With that caveat in mind, I feel that Ms. Hill Lindley did a great job surveying an immense topic in a way that was interesting, readable and empowering. This is a great resource and jumping off point for studying how women and religion interacted throughout the history of the U.S.
