The second edition of this popular book has been updated and provided with a new Preface and bibliography, ensuring that it remains an indispensable introduction to feminist theology. The second edition of this highly popular Introduction includes a new preface and each chapter has been revised to keep it as up-to-date as possible. 'Introducing Feminist Theolog'y remains a lively and stimulating 'first read' for anyone embarking on feminist theology, as well as a first rate resource for those wishing to refresh their acquiantaince with it. Despite claims in some quarters that 'feminism' has been surpassed by 'gender' this book explains how vital a feminist agenda remains, and how much is still to be done, both at the theological and the practical level, to transform Christianity from two centuries of male-gendered discourse and ecclesiastical structure into a religion that adequately reflects the life of modern women.
