Abstract:

"Liberal, modern approaches to theology have tended to silence voices from the margins. This book offers an alternative, feminist theological approach that more adequately addresses issues of diversity and marginalization. It critically examines and combines aspects of four different feminist approaches: Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza's critical modern, Mary McClintock Fulkerson's poststructural, Kwok Pui-lan's postcolonial, and Kathryn Tanner's postliberal. This alternative, feminist theological approach is then used to examine how a liberal, mainstream Protestant denomination has dealt with issues of sexual orientation and gender. Particular attention is given to biblical interpretation as shaped by community, the role of traditional doctrine, assumptions of authority and revelation, and communities of accountability."--Jacket.
