The opening of the ordained ministry to women, in the larger context of the women's movement in America, has created an unprecedented situation within Protestant denominations. This book is the first careful historical and sociological study of the impact of these gender changes on the Episcopal church. It includes essays on Episcopal theology and women's spirituality, the urban church, aging and the church, women's organizations, women donors, clerical leadership, and black women's experience in the Episcopal Church."[This] is one of those ground-breaking books that ought to herald a 'next generation' of studies in a number of fields. Feminist theologians and historians will find here a valuable resource for scholarship. ... Moreover, one of the greatest strengths of the book is its ability to unearth the wells of wisdom that reside in 'ordinary' women in 'ordinary' congregations."--Anglican Theological Review"A pioneering work in the field of Women's religious Studies. ... Ground breaking."--Trinity News"Few developments in the twentieth century have been as consequential for American religion as the rethinking of gender. This evocative collection of essays helps us to understand why."--Robert Wuthnow, Princeton University
