Reviews - What do customers think about Her Story: Women in Christian Tradition (2nd Edition)?

Classic Text Made Better  Dec 3, 2006
With the new second edition of "Her Story," the classic text has been made even better. For a broad introduction of women in the Christian tradition, there is no better academic text available. MacHaffie writes like a seasoned professor, in the best sense of that term. To make matters even better, her constantly-updated web site makes her new edition like an ever-updated book. If you are a professor or student wanting a general overview to the topic of women in Christian history, stop here first.

Reviewer: Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of "Soul Physicians," "Spiritual Friends," "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," and the forthcoming "Sacred Friendships: Listening to the Voices of Women Soul Care-Givers and Spiritual Directors."

Dr. MacHaffie is a Genious  Mar 21, 2006
Dr. Barbara MacHaffie's book Her Story is eminently readable and always informative. Her books and her scholarship are inspirational. Fantastic book by an amazing woman.
Very eloquently and convincingly documented  Nov 19, 1998
"Her Story: Women in Christian Tradition" was written to redress the history of women in Christianity. She noted that traditionally, the focus has always been on the successes and failures of the male side of the Christian community. Eclipsed in those accounts were the significant stories of women, their roles and episcopal status, and how they converge with cultural undertones and the emerging epistemological frames of feminism and American religion. She explores this by tracing how the study of women, in Christianity, has developed through the ages. In this respect, she seeks to rewrite "His" story by telling "Her" story.
