Throughout much of the history of the Christian church, in all its complexity, women's participation in worship has been largely as spectators, recipients or followers, rather than as actors, celebrants or leaders. There have, of course, been notable exceptions, often among groups of Christians who are, in some sense, marginalized anyway. This book explores the experience of women in worship historically and in the present day, when a specifically feminist approach to worship is beginning to express itself in developing new imagery, in rediscovering female imagery in scripture, and in exploring creative and participatory rituals.
