      This book is an excellent resource for those interested in feminist theology, though not for a novice feminist theologian. Many of the articles expect at least an introductory level of knowledge in the field. The ecumenical content is perfect for those interested in the development of global feminist theologies, especially perspectives other than white Christian, though this perspective is also included.

      Highlights included Wilma Ann Bailey's essay on the character of Leah, Gail O'Day's essay on friendship and embodiment in John, Mary Boys' chapter on the spirituality of interreligious encounter, and Hibba Abugideiri's longer piece on Islamic feminisms. That last almost made me want to go back to grad school for another degree, which is no mean feat!
