Daughters of Abraham by Yvonne Yazbeck Haddad
Book DescriptionImportant for a general audience interested in women and religion, this book should be especially valuable to scholars in the fields of feminist theology, comparative religion and interfaith studies. Based on the premise that women's struggles to have their voices heard are shared throughout the monotheisms, these essays offer new insights into the traditions of three religions during the past century. Six scholars engage in dialogue with their own faith communities, reflecting on their scripture and theology in order to understand the process by which women have been constrained within the patriarchal teachings of the religion. Looking at texts long utilized to keep women within boundaries, they open up the scriptures and traditions to a feminist interpretation of the historical teachings of their faiths.
