Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Are patriarchy and the Christian faith so inextricably linked that the very theology glorifies violence, suffering, and sacrifice? Is it possible to be feminist and retain some attachment to the Christian tradition? Contributors to this classic address these questions from the perspectives of theology, history, ethics, and pastoral psychology.
