Kindness of God by Janet Martin Soskice
Book DescriptionFathers, sons, brothers, kings. Does the predominantly masculine symbolism of the Biblical writings exclude women or overlook the riches of their spiritual life? If Christ is 'the second Adam' and the one on whom all Christian life must be patterned, then what about Eve? This book from a leading scholar of religious language and feminism opens up the Bible's imagery for sex, gender, and kinship and does so by discussing its place in the central teachings of Christian theology: the doctrine of God and spirituality, Imago Dei and anthropology, Creation, Christology and the Cross, the Trinity, and eschatology.

Feminism and Theology, Paperback (November 2003)» View all books by Janet Martin Soskice
Many assume that tumultuous debate in the last decades of the 20th century left women with a clear-cut choice - either faith or feminism. The essays in this collection suggest otherwise; women continue to feel at once drawn to and rejected by traditional religions. The volume emphasises both Christian and Jewish feminist writings in theology.
