Public Theology and the Challenge of Feminism Paperback / softback

Edited by Stephen Burns, Anita Monro

Part of the Gender, Theology and Spirituality series



Public Theology is a rapidly growing international field of study which focuses on how Christian belief and practice engage with wider social issues.

Yet, whilst the ultimate concern of public theology is the well-being of society, this body of theology has largely developed without integrating the thinking of feminist theology and its insights into womens' lives and experience.

Public Theology and the Challenge of Feminism argues that public theology risks re-inscribing traditional constructs of public and private, civic and domestic, and uncritical notions of gender and the work and worth of people.

The book brings together both theory and case material to expose how public theology has actively downplayed or ignored feminist perspectives and to reveal how constructive feminism can be for the future of public theology.
