Using feminist theology as a tool to expose the male-centred bias of classical theology, Rosemary Radford Ruether articulates a faith which incorporates both genders in their totality, and which embraces a full humanity.

Whereas the traditional paradigm begets domination and subordination, Ruether's feminism seeks a mutuality which allows for variety and particularly in women and men.

Examining ways in which the female has been (uncomfortably) accommodated within the Christian tradition in ecclesiology and Mariology, the author looks at ways of rehabilitating these images, and engages creatively in the areas of the doctrine of creation, Christology, ministry and eschatology.

At the heart of this work is the argument that the dominant Christian tradition, if it is challenged and corrected by feminism, offers viable and credible categories for interpreting human existence and building redemptive communities.

'Brian Frost charts the histories with immaculate care and many footnotes, but also with deep feeling and often personal recollections, expecially concerning our coomon contemporaries - which many, like myself, will particularly value.' -- The Revd Dr John Vincent, Methodist Recorder, October 12, 2006.
