Religion, Feminism and the Family by Anne Carr

Book Description

Despite the tension between some proponents of feminism and organized religion, particularly in regard to family life, little has been written to view religion, feminism, and the family simultaneously. Drawing on history, theology, and the social sciences, the contributors to this volume analyze the impact of feminism on the experience of family life in its religious dimension. Religion, Feminism, and the Family is designed to stimulate discussion on both the contemporary women's movement and the future of the American family. The Family, Culture, and Religion series offers informed and responsible analyses of the state of the American family from a religious perspective and provides practical assistance for the family's revitalization.

Transforming Grace by Anne Carr Transforming Grace, Paperback (September 1996)

"Carr combines her skills as a theologian with her experience in the women's movement to argue that the challeng and vision of women in the church is grounded on the Gospel itself, and that the 'radical' changes imagined by feminists are consistent with the Christian tradition at its finest".--Mary Jo Weaver.
