Feminism & Christianity: A Two-way Reflection

Front Cover
University Press of America, 1982 - Religion - 188 pages
0 Reviews
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.
