Reviews

'Faith, Feminism, and Scholarship is destined to become a classic. This generation of scholars go far beyond traditional abstract theology. Each presentation is framed amidst multi-layered, embodied complexities. By reading the chapters and wrestling with discussion questions much usable wisdom becomes visible.' Katie G. Cannon, Annie Scales Rogers Professor of Christian Ethics, Union Presbyterian Seminary

'Third wave feminist scholars of religion are doing something new under the theological sun. Community-based, sisterist work now infuses classrooms with complex questions, twenty-first-century global analysis, and unwavering commitment to justice. This sparkling anthology proves that the field is in great hands.' Mary E. Hunt, Women's Alliance for Theology, Ethics and Ritual (WATER)

'This volume by third wave Asian, black, Latina, and white feminist and womanist scholars is bold and pioneering. I recommend this most highly to all who are interested in cutting-edge conversations on religious scholarship, pedagogy, and activism.' Kwok Pui-lan, William F. Cole Professor of Christian Theology and Spirituality, Episcopal Divinity School

'This is a much-needed volume. As womanist and feminist thought both enter a 'third wave,' the boundaries of each are expanding. Ott and Harris take us to those edges and open new territory for thought and for action, moving beyond notions of 'equality' to something more complex and important.' Carolyn Jones Medine, Associate Professor of Religion, University of Georgia
