"I am tremendously impressed by Sarah Coakley's book. It makes a bridge between the naive prephilosophical version of crucial beliefs and current work on feminist theology which is very arcane to the outsider. Sarah's clarity of expression and her tough style of argument are a delight. It is wonderful how well these separate essays follow on one another and have so much continuity." Mary DouglasIn this book Sarah Coakley confronts a central paradox of theological feminism--what she terms 'the paradox of power and vulnerability'.* Confronts a central paradox of theological feminism--what Coakley terms 'paradox of power and vulnerability'.* Explores this issue through the perspective of spiritual practice, philosophical enquiry and doctrinal analysis.* Draws together an essential collection of Sarah Coakley's work in this field.* Offers an original perspective into contemporary feminist theology.ContentsAcknowledgements.Preface.Prologue: Powers and Submissions.Part I: The Comtemplative Matrix.Part II: Philosophical Interlocutions.Part III: Doctrinal Implications.Index.
