In Her Name: Women Doing Theology
Women are now actively engaged in the work of theology and their insights are re-shaping the Christian theological tradition. In Her Name: Women Doing Theology presents an overview of the theological contributions of women around the world with special attention to those of African women. Beginning with a discussion of the origins and development of feminist theology and its interpretations in Africa and other continents, the book then engages with the key themes of Christian theology: woman as person, God, Christology, biblical hermeneutics, church and ministry, ethical issues, ecofeminism. Mariology and holiness, spirituality, and eschatology and hope. Each chapter contains reflection questions and suggestions for further reading to assist in small group and class discussion.
