Feminist theory and Christian theology : cartographies of grace by Serene Jones( Book )
6 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This long-awaited text charts clearly and comprehensively the enormously important area of feminist theory -- and brings it into fruitful conversation with Christian theology. Jones introduces the primary concerns that animate feminist theory through discussion of critical texts and through women's narratives. She shows how they pose uncomfortable questions, and leave no corner of the Christian tradition unchallenged. Jones unfolds feminist theory in three broad categories that analyze human identity and gender, oppression, and ethics. She then illustrates their potential for illuminating theological categories of experience, truth, text, and norm to revitalize three key traditional Christian doctrines: faith, sin, and church
Feminist and womanist essays in Reformed dogmatics ( Book )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this volume, noted feminist and womanist scholars committed to the Reformed tradition have joined together to reflect on the meaning of its key theological concepts, including Scripture and tradition, the imago Dei, creation, providence, election, and grace. Though highlighting the value found in the Reformed tradition, their essays press on toward new formulations and understandings of the traditional Christian doctrines."--BOOK JACKET

Latina evangélicas : a theological survey from the margins by Loida I Martell-Otero( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Latina Evangélicas: A Theological Survey from the Margins is a constructive and postcolonial examination of the theology of Protestant Latinas who reside in the United States. Written by three Latinas who have pastored and who teach in Latina/o communities, the book seeks to expand beyond Latina feminist and mujerista voices to include those whose perspectives have not yet been heard. It thus introduces an important theological perspective to a wider audience, and provides an important resource that has been lacking for evangelicas/os and other marginalized groups who study in various theological programs. Key terminology, such as evangélica, is defined throughout, and a glossary is included for non-Spanish-speaking readers. Each chapter considers theological themes important to the Latina Protestant worshiping community, beginning with a constructive discussion of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit and followed by the doctrines of salvation and Jesus Christ, the Trinity, the church, Scripture, and "the last things" (eschatology). Given that one of the characteristics of Latina/o theologies is their dialogical and collaborative nature, the book concludes with a conversation among the three authors about the theological thinking that took place in its composition. Study questions are included at the end of each chapter."--P. [4] of cover
Bill Moyers journal ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This edition of the Journal features three renowned scholars-Cornel West, Serence Jones, and Gary Dorrien-who tem-taught a provocative and insightful course called 'Christianity and the U.S. Crisis" at Union Theological Seminary. Together they offer a fresh take on what America's religious traditions and core ethics and values say about the nation's politics and policies as well as the challenges of balancing capitalism and democracy. The program also checks up on the struggle of food banks and soup kitchens around the nation to feed the growing ranks of those in need."--The container
