Many people consider feminist studies to be an academic “man-hater” club for women. Feminism and Theology, edited by Janet Martin Soskice and Diana Lipton gives the lie to this notion. The editors’ use of essays, interviews, and short stories to guide their theological inquiry captured my attention. The book allowed me to engage in an unbiased exploration of feminist studies as the authors address biblical interpretation, historical approaches, doctrine, and the philosophy of religion and ethics.
