Item description for Taking Up the Cross: New Testament Interpretations Through Latina and Feminist Eyes by Barbara E. Reid...

Overview
Discussions of the meaning of Jesus' passion are at a creative high point, in part because of popular events like Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, and Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, but also because of a groundswell of interest in contemporary biblical scholarship. Barbara E. Reid, O.P., here pays attention to the role of women in the accounts of Jesus' passion and observes that some of the interpretations of Jesus' death in the New Testament open us up to life and liberation, while others have been used to perpetuate cycles of violence and victimization. When women have identified their suffering with that of Jesus, this has sometimes given them strength, but has also led to a harmful acceptance of unjust suffering. Reid explores five theological "images" of the death of Jesus through conversation with the voices of women from Mexico, Bolivia, and Peru and examination of the roles of women in the New Testament accounts. The result is an illuminating combination of New Testament exegesis with a liberative constructive theology.
