Description

In this constructive study, Miles proposes a new feminist theological ethic, drawing together the contributions of Reinhold Niebuhr, Sharon Welch, and Rosemary Ruether. Seeking to critically reappropriate the Christian realism articulated by Niebuhr, she reinterprets solutions to problems emergent from his theology. Miles presents feminist Christian realism as an alternative that can reclaim a positive interpretation of divine transcendence and human self-transcendence, while maintaining newer emphases on human boundedness and divine immanence. Theologians and ethicists will find her critical reassessment of the three authors distinctive and her challenging proposal for a "positive creative transformation" a significant contribution to the development of feminist ethics.show more

Review quote

This book will be of interest to anyone concerned with either the significance of feminist thought, or the legacy of Reinhold Niebuhr, for theological ethics and anthropology; the fact that these concerns have been brought together so skilfully is in itself admirable. * Journal of Theological Studies *show more
