She suggests that through the development of secular ethics, religion can be directed not to the anticipation of a mythical afterlife but instead to the transformation of the present. Courageously questioning why 'neither religion morality nor ethics has made us good' she demonstrates the ways in which a male-driven ideology has produced a religion focusing on death and discouraging any attention to the improvement of life on Earth. Offering new thoughts that advocate a collective change of view this volume delves intensively into religion and the influence of gender. Coming generations will welcome this new edition of His Religion and Hers now with an introduction by noted scholar Michael S. Kimmel."--BOOK JACKET."
