Winner of the Louisville Grawemeyer Award in Religion, this classic text explains what feminist theology is and how we can rediscover the feminine God within the Christian tradition, offering a profound vision of Christian theology, women's experience, and emancipation.

First published in 1992, it immediately caused a groundswell reaction for and against the concept of women's participation and role in the Christian church. It is both controversial and thought provoking. It served as the seminal text in the analysis of woman and Christianity. This 25th anniversary edition, with new content, will keep it in the forefront of the feminist theology conversation.

“Elizabeth Johnson’s study is simply superb. The clarity of her analyses and judicious yet imaginative use of language advance feminist theology to a new level of discussion. Every serious student of theology must read this brilliant work of scholarship and creativity.” —Anne Carr, Professor of Theology, Divinity School, University of Chicago

“In this lucid, troubling, deeply consoling book, Elizabeth Johnson seeks a liberating language for women and men to use together in addressing the mystery of God. I cannot imagine a serious reader who will not learn here to think and act and, yes, pray in a new way.” —Leo J. O’Donovan, S.J., President, Georgetown University
