About this book

This up-to-date and forward-looking collection of essays on gender and religion fills a crucial gap. Interdisciplinary and multi-traditional, this volume highlights the contributions that different disciplinary approaches make to feminist/gender studies and religion. Designed for the classroom, the Reader simultaneously assesses the state of the field and raises questions for further inquiry and investigation.

Reviews

'Working the nexus of several volatile categories-women, gender, religion-these essays explore both theoretical and practical occasions on which these terms must be mutually interpreted. From the perspectives of diverse disciplines, the authors take up the most important and difficult challenges to feminism. Each essay is fascinating and instructive. Together they expose and explore the state of the discourse at the beginning of the twenty-first century. This is the essential book for feminist studies in religion.'

'These stimulating and sophisticated essays combine to create an essential

collection of feminist studies in religion.' - Margaret R. Miles, Dillenberger Professor of Historical Theology, Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley

'An excellent basic text for an academic introduction to the field.' - WaterWheel

'This collection will prove an invaluable, if demanding, text for those undergraduate and postgraduate courses in religion and gender which aim to be multi-traditional and cross-historical...no serious student of the discipline should ignore its manifold challenges to understanding.' - Melissa Raphael, Modern Believing
