In this constructive study, Miles proposes a new feminist theological ethic, drawing together the contributions of Reinhold Niebuhr, Sharon Welch, and Rosemary Ruether. Seeking to critically reappropriate the Christian realism articulated by Niebuhr, she reinterprets solutions to problems emergent from his theology. Miles presents feminist Christian realism as an alternative that can reclaim a positive interpretation of divine transcendence and human self-transcendence, while maintaining newer emphases on human boundedness and divine immanence. Theologians and ethicists will find her critical reassessment of the three authors distinctive and her challenging proposal for a "positive creative transformation" a significant contribution to the development of feminist ethics.Table of Contents1 Freedom and Boundedness: A Feminist Christian Realist Account 2 What's So Bad about Reinhold Niebuhr?: Feminist Criticisms of Niebuhr 3 Freedom for the World: Reinhold Niebuhr's Christian Realism 4 The Evolution of Cooperation and Consciousness: Rosemary Ruether's Naturalist Moral Realism 5 Battling for Truth in the Beloved Community: Sharon Welch's Relativist Political Realism 6 Dueling Realisms: Ruether, Welch, Niebuhr, and a Feminist Christian Realism Afterword Notes Bibliography Index
