Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Since Karl Rahner posited the importance of the nature of the human as the starting point for theological reflection, the field of Christian anthropology has been one where very basic questions - and much creative theologizing - have been focused. For example, liberation theologians have had much to say about the presumptions inherent in classical definitions of human being and have pointed up the vital idea of social location as an integral part of human experience. Theological anthropology has come to be of vital interest to Christian feminists as well. As in other disciplines, the study of what is human tends to either ignore gender or to favor one as normative. In the quest to understand the totality of human experience it is necessary to view it from 'lived' experience. At the same time and deeply embedded in the Christian tradition is the recognition that human beings come from God, are going to God, and dwell in the embrace of God. 'In the Embrace of God' provides a well-organized, clearly focused volume of original essays by North American feminist theologians encompassing the major areas of theological anthropology. In addressing the meaning of creation and end-time, fall and redemption, sin and grace, pain and suffering, sexuality and ecology, these contributors offer fresh insights and helpful new ways to approach the rich complexities of human experience.

Is feminist theology "Christian," and if so, in what respect and to what extent? This study seeks to analyze and evaluate the relation of feminist "reconstructions" to traditional Christian teaching. Greene-McCreight uses the extent to which the biblical depiction of God is allowed to guide theological hermeneutics as a test of orthodoxy. She looks at the writings of a wide range of contemporary feminist theologians, discusses their doctrinal patterns, and demonstrates how the Bible is used in undergirding their theological reconstructions.

This book was released on 2010-03-11 with total page 254 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A strong critique of traditional atonement theology is found in the work of many contemporary feminist theologians. This approach, in large part, is related to the notion of women's experience--a category that is used widely within feminist theology. But what is women's experience and how does it affect feminist theology, particularly views on the atonement? The category of women's experience is pivotal to feminist theology, yet its use may lead to models of atonement that place excessive stress upon the subjective element of Christ's saving work thereby neglecting to address adequately the objective aspects of the cross. This book focuses on the methodological issues regarding the category of women's experience generally, its definition and use in feminist theology, with a more detailed analysis of its use in the context of feminist theologies of atonement. Utilizing the work of a wide variety of feminist theologians in conversation with theologies of experience, this work attempts to understand the role of women's experience as it shapes feminist views on the atonement, noting the strengths and limitations of feminist approaches to soteriology.

Download or read book Theology and Feminism PDF or another Format written by Daphne Hampson and published by Wiley-Blackwell. This book was released on 1991-01-08 with total page 204 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Feminism represents a radical challenge to Christianity. Having developed its doctrine and its scriptures in a world in which women were considered subordinate, the Christian religion is now confronted with a deeply held ethical belief that women should be treated as equals. Dr Hampson argues that this ethical challenge confronts the church over the issues of priesthood and ordination, language and imagery, and hermeneutics and theology. In each of these areas, she claims, the Christian religion cannot by definition come to terms with the equality of women. Feminism however suggests new ways to conceive God and reformulate theological ideas for a world in which Christianity is no longer tenable. Theology and Feminism contains chapters on methodology, Christology, symbolism, anthropology and theology. It is the first book from a post-Christian perspective to grapple with all the major areas of theology. Covering the work of conservative Christian, Christian feminist and radical feminist thinkers in religion, it will be welcomed by those already familiar with the discussion, as well as providing a clear introduction for those who are new to the subject.

Download or read book Sexism and God-talk PDF or another Format written by Rosemary Radford Ruether and published by SCM Press. This book was released on 2002 with total page 247 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Using feminist theology as a tool to expose the male-centred bias of classical theology, Ruether articulates a faith which incorporates both genders in their totality, and which embraces a full humanity. Whereas the traditional paradigm begets domination and subordination, Ruether's feminism seeks a mutuality which allows for variety and particularly in women and men. Examining ways in which the female has been (uncomfortably) accommodated within the Christian tradition in ecclesiology and Mariology, the author looks at ways of rehabilitating these images, and engages creatively in the areas of the doctrine of creation, Christology, ministry and eschatology. At the heart of this work is the argument that the dominant Christian tradition, if it is challenged and corrected by feminism, offers viable and credible categories for interpreting human existence and building redemptive communities.
