Introductions in Feminist Theology (IFT) explores various theological topics that challenge patriarchal theology and suggest liberating alternatives. The authors and editors seek to expand theological discourse by providing reliable guides to the history of thinking, current issues and debates, and possible future developments in feminist theology.This imaginative book challenges the oppressive model of an all-powerful God and highlights feminist interpretations of Christ across the globe.The book attempts to chart a course from questioning the relevance of a male savior to women -- to the many faces of Christ that have emerged from the lives of women (Jesus as lover, friend, or shaman, amongst other things) -- to a place of reflection about the nature of Christological thinking in the twenty-first century.Introducing Feminist Christologies probes the following: -- Does Christianity have anything to offer women and can women find Jesus?-- What kind of God are we proclaiming in a world of oppression?-- Is Christianity too patriarchal and outmoded to make a difference in the world or to act as a positive environment for women?-- Can women continue to interact with a figure that has historically been used against them?Theology lived by women is not about systems of dogma, doctrines, and categories... Once women start theological reflection from their own embodied experience and from the earth, the face of theology changes, writes Lisa Isherwood.
