Introducing Feminist Christologies

Introducing Feminist Christologies. This book explores, and interacts with, the wide range of feminist christologies that we see across the globe. The feminist critique of religion and theology has yielded many outcomes in relation to the person of Jesus who moves from being the once and for all saviour of the world to lover, friend, ground of being or shaman amongst other things. The book considers whether there will be a place for christology in future feminist engagement with theology. Introducing feminist christologies.

Feminist theology is a movement found in several religions, including Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, and New Thought, to reconsider the traditions, practices, scriptures.

Theology-womanist theology (by African-American women), mujerista theology (by Hispanic women in the United States)- et. women theologians from Asia do not categorize their theologies in any way other than Asian feminist theology. It is notable that most Asian feminist theology in this stage engages in the conversation with diverse theories including postcolonial theory, poststructuralist theory, psychoanalysis, and political feminist hermeneutics, seeking interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary studies.

Asian feminist theology is a Christian feminist theology developed to be especially relevant to women in Asia. Inspired by both liberation theology and feminist theology, it aims to contextualize them to the conditions and experiences of Asian women. The first recognizable collective attempt to do Asian feminist theology can be traced to the late 1970s, which saw the formation of theological networks and centres that aimed to study the gendered dimension of both theology and society.

Here, distinguished feminist theologian, Rosemary Ruether, traces the tension between patriarchal and egalitarian patterns in Christian theology historically. She then examines key theological themes-Christology, the self, the cross and future hope-in the light of her critique. Rosemary Radford Ruether. Christianity begins with what appears to be an inclusive promise of redemption in Christ without regard to gender. Paul proclaimed that 'In Christ there is no more male and female.

This imaginative book challenges the oppressive model of an all-powerful God and highlights feminist interpretations of Christ across the globe. The author attempts to chart a course from questioning the relevance of a male savior to women-the many faces of Christ that have emerged from the lives of women (Jesus as lover, friend, or shaman, amongst other things)-to a place of reflection about the nature of Christological thinking in the twenty-first century. "Theology lived by women is not about systems of dogma, doctrines, and categories...Once women start theological reflection from their own embodied experience and from the earth, the face of theology changes," writes the author. The Introductions in Feminist Theology Series explores various theological topics that challenge patriarchal theology and suggests liberating alternatives. The authors and editors seek to expand the theological discourse by providing reliable guides to the history of thinking, current issues and debates, and possible future developments in feminist theology. The author teaches theology at the University College of St. Mark and St. John in Plymouth, England. She is the founding editor of the Journal of Feminist Theology

Dr. Isherwood provides a brief introduction to Feminist Christologies in this book. She covers various elements in feminist thought and how Christ is a presence in this thought. WHile feminism tends to limit the discussion to white, western thought, Isherwood includes a good deal of womanist and Asian Feminist thought in the book also. The one problem is that she slights the contribution of Hispanic women in this book. They are included, but not fully represented as they could be. However, I do not feel that it undermines the book. THis book is good if you are looking for a general overview of the subject and the various elements in this subject. THe extensive bibliography also makes it helpful to go into deeper study of various areas if one chooses.
