The Religious Imagination of American Women by Mary Farrell Bednarowski

This book is a nuanced discussion of contemporary feminist thought in a variety of religious traditions. It draws from both academic and popular writings and offers a rich selection of books to pursue on one's own. -Re-Imagining This remarkable book examines American women's religious thought in many diverse faith traditions.... This is a cogent, provocative-even moving-analysis. -Publishers Weekly This study of the fruits of many different women's religious thought offers insights into the ways women may be shaping American religious ideas and world views at the end of the twentieth century. At its broadest, this book presents a multi-voiced response to the question: When women across many traditions are heard speaking theologically, publicly and self-consciously as women, what do they have to say?


Scholars will find that this exploration of women's public discourse about religious ideas helps to reveal the common threads that run through women's writing.May 2000 * Choice *
