Introducing Redemption in Christian Feminism (Ruether)
Challenging Patriarchal Theology
Acclaimed feminist scholar Rosemary Radford Ruether examines two contradictory strains of thought in Christianity: the redemption of Christ for all without regard to gender, and the exclusion of women from leadership based on beliefs in women's culpability for sin and subordinate nature.
After exploring these two thought traditions, Ruether examines key theological themes: Christology, the self, the cross, and eschatology.
Introducing Redemption in Christian Feminism is part of The Introductions in Feminist Theology series, which explores challenges to patriarchal theology. The authors and editors seek to provide reliable guides to the history of thinking, current issues, and possible future developments in feminist theology.
