Readings in Her Story: Women in Christian Tradition

Forside
Barbara J. MacHaffie
Fortress Press - 238 sider
A unique anthology. Barbara MacHaffie has collected into one volume 74 of the most important Christian documents and passages by and about women. Ranging from Genesis to now, these primary sources put the reader directly in touch with the most significant and influential events, personalities and issues of women's religious history. Often lamentably and sometimes gloriously, these voices ancient and modern, female and male, Roman Catholic and Protestant, feminist and patriarchal bear decisively on women's identities today.
