Feminism Christianity from the Author: Denise Lardner Carmody. Seeking to uncover the places where feminism and Christianity, taken as deep spiritual paths, converge, the author shows that theism adds a dimension to life that the feminist movement needs. Conversely, she points out that Christianity can benefit from some of the messages that feminists are projecting. She focuses on the dimensions of divinity (theology), self (psychology), society (sociology) and nature (ecology). Her balanced perspective should appeal to both feminists and Christians of both sexes. Originally published in 1982 by Abingdon Press.

Feminism And Christianity from the Author: Caryn D. Riswold. Why should feminists care about Christianity? Why should Christians care about feminism? In Feminism and Christianity Riswold presents a collection of concise answers to basic questions like these in order to generate discussion about how the two can challenge each other and can even work together in the twenty-first century. Situated firmly in the third wave of feminist activism and scholarship as well as in contemporary Christian theology, Riswold addresses issues such as race, class, gender, and sexuality with an affirmation of tradition alongside a push for change. This book is an opportunity for Christians to gain a fuller understanding of feminism, moving beyond stereotypes and assumptions and into history and contemporary society. Simultaneously this book is an opportunity for feminists to understand the ongoing relevance of a religion whose social power and core commitments can contribute to a vision of a just human community.

Introducing Redemption In Christian Feminism from the Author: Rosemary Radford Ruether. Christianity begins with what appears to be an inclusive promise of redemption in Christ without regard to gender. Paul proclaimed that 'In Christ there is no more male and female.' Yet Christianity soon developed a patriarchal social structure, excluding women from public ministry, with the argument that women were created subordinate in nature and were more culpable for sin. Here, distinguished feminist theologian, Rosemary Ruether, traces the tension between patriarchal and egalitarian patterns in Christian theology historically. She then examines key theological themes--Christology, the self, the cross and future hope--in the light of her critique.
