Item description for Religion, Feminism, and the Family (Studies in Family, Religion, and Culture) by Carr...

Overview
Drawing on historical, theological, social scientific, and practical skills, the contributorsa to this volume analyze the impact of feminism on the experience of family life in its religious dimension. This volume helps reshape the church's understanding of feminism, religion, and the family by stimulating thought on both the contemporary women's movement and the wider debate over the future of the American family.

Publishers Description

Despite the tension between some proponents of feminism and organized religion, particularly in regard to family life, little has been written to view religion, feminism, and the family simultaneously. Drawing on history, theology, and the social sciences, the contributors to this volume analyze the impact of feminism on the experience of family life in its religious dimension. "Religion, Feminism, and the Family" is designed to stimulate discussion on both the contemporary women's movement and the future of the American family.

The Family, Culture, and Religion series offers informed and responsible analyses of the state of the American family from a religious perspective and provides practical assistance for the family's revitalization.

Reviews - What do customers think about Religion, Feminism, and the Family (Studies in Family, Religion, and Culture)?

Reconciling and renewing traditions, institutions, & change  May 16, 1999
Proponents of religion, feminism, and the family often appear to have irreconcilable differences and incommensurable objectives. In this book, a product of the Religion, Culture, and Family Project at the University of Chicago Divinity School, Anne Carr and Mary Stewart Van Leeuwen have assembled a provocative collection of essays on the relationship and mutually reinforcing qualities of religious tradition, feminist thought, and familial relations. The contributors bring a range of historical, theological, social scientific, and pastoral perspectives together to bear in an overall argument that religion, feminism, and family need not be incurably antagonistic to one another.

The argument has three basic components. First, feminism must recognize and retrieve the religious precedents for its deepest convictions about equality and freedom. Second, religion must take into account the insights and concerns of contemporary feminism in order to remain relevant in contemporary society. Finally, families need a feminism that is religiously articulate and a religion that is sensitive to the needs of families. These points emerge over and over as the contributors examine Jewish and Christian theologies of gender and family, the history of religious and feminist influences on the family in the West, and a number of current family issues in which that religious and feminist is much in evidence. This wonderfully ecumenical volume is highly recommended for anyone interested in the interrelation of religion, feminism, and family in the past and present.
