About the Authors
  • Feminist theology is a significant movement within contemporary theology. The aim of this Companion is to give an outline of feminist theology through an analysis of its overall shape and its major themes, so that both its place in and its contributions to the present changing theological landscape may be discerned. The two sections of the volume are designed to provide a comprehensive and critical introduction to feminist theology which is authoritative and up-to-date. Written by some of the main figures in feminist theology, as well as by younger scholars who are considering their inheritance, it offers fresh insights into the nature of feminist theological work. The book as a whole is intended to present a challenge for future scholarship, since it critically engages with the assumptions of feminist theology, and seeks to open ways for women after feminism to enter into the vocation of theology.

    • Expertly guides students and teachers around the prominent questions of feminist theology, as well as its bibliographic resources
    • Combines essays from some of the leading figures in the field of feminist theology, with those from the new generation of scholars considering their inheritance
    • Brings out new issues to challenge future theological and philosophical scholarship

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Difficult as it is to incorporate the origins, tensions and future directions of feminist theory in a book of 260 pages, the editor and contributors have succeeded in producing a challenging contribution to the Cambridge Companion series.' Theology

    'This book … will be of interest to all readers, Christian or non, concerned with what constitutes feminist theology, its impact on societies and the church, where it is currently, and where it wants to go in the future.' Reviews in Religion and Theology
