Editorial Reviews

Review


"[N]on-evangelical Christian feminists might be interested in recovering Bushnell s scholarship, as it has striking resonance with their own e.g., a firm commitment to female equality in church and home. But Bushnell rejected higher criticism and would surely condemn any claim that biblical culture itself is saturated with patriarchy. Du Mez does a great service in opening up such conversations."--Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology


"This is the book many of us have been waiting for, a top-notch biography of the inimitable Kate Bushnell. DuMez provides a thoroughly compelling portrait of a woman both ahead of and behind her times, whose accomplishments-and subsequent obscurity-tell us much about the long and vexed relationship between conservative religion and modern feminism." --Margaret Bendroth, Executive Director, Congregational Library


"In this dazzling hybrid of history, biography, and theology, Kristin DuMez rekindles our interest in a path-breaking woman -- Katharine Bushnell -- whose sprawling work on behalf of Christian feminism spanned decades, traversed boundaries, shattered categories, and covered the globe. With judiciousness and a lively pen, DuMez makes it perfectly clear why this crusading reformer, written off or forgotten as a product of an antiquated Victorian past, must be re-centered in our histories and current renderings of modern Christianity and of modern America itself." --Darren Dochuk, author of From Bible Belt to Sunbelt: Plain-folk Religion, Grassroots Politics, and the Rise of Evangelical Conservatism



"Katharine Bushnell was a pioneering physician, missionary, expert in Greek and Hebrew, critic of the sexual double standard, and advocate for women's rights-all within late-Victorian culture. Kristin Kobes DuMez's historical contribution demonstrates why Bushnell deserves to be remembered as a noteworthy reformer. The book also challenges modern feminists who question Christianity and modern Christians who question feminism to ponder what each might learn from Bushnell's extraordinary career." --Mark Noll, author of Protestantism: A Very Short Introduction


"...[A] fascinating study... This is both an important work of scholarship and an engrossing and accessible book for those interested in the many provocative issues it covers... Highly recommended." --CHOICE


"Bushnell's key insights should resonate with present-day promoters of feminist consciousness."--Christian Century
