To many people, women as well as men, feminism is
a subversive threat to both Church and society. In the words
of one churchman, ‘Feminism presents a profound internal
challenge to the basic tenets of Christianity’ (The Revd John
Broadhurst in his paper on feminist theology for the General
Synod debate, July 1991).
Is that a fair assessment? If not, what positive
contribution does feminism have to offer? Is feminism
helpful only to women? Or is it true, as some believe, that
men need feminism too?
These are some of the questions addressed in this
intriguing book, in which distinguished churchmen and male
theologians consider key aspects of feminism and how it
affects the way they live and understand the Christian faith
