Item description for Readings in Her Story: Women in Christian Tradition by Barbara J. MacHaffie...
Overview READINGS IN HER STORY is a unique anthology. Barbara MacHaffie has collected into one volume 74 of the most important Christian documents and passages by and about women. Ranging from Genesis to now, these primary sources put the reader directly in touch with the most significant and influential events, personalities, and issues of women's religious history. Often lamentably and sometimes glorious, these voices--ancient and modern, female and male, Roman Catholic and Protestant, feminist and patriarchal--bear decisively on women's identities today.

I have read this book in College Jan 15, 2002
for Dr. MacHaffie's class on Women and Religion. This was such an excellent text that I am still recommending it to people almost 10 years later.

I had to read this book for a class on the Story of Christianity. I liked it so much I plan on buying it for fellow women for Christmas. This book fills a hole in the literature telling the story of Christianity. It covers writings by and about women that are hard to find in one volume. The first chapter is significant writings from the Bible. Later chapters include theologians commenting on women and the writings of women themselves. Most selections are two or three pages long. I majored in religion in college and had not heard of most of the female writers I was reading. It was refreshing. Because history is written from the perspective of those in power, those without power are often ignored. This book gives a voice to women in the story of Christianity. Parts make a person angry in how they understand women, others give hope, and still others tell what life was like for women. If you are interested in reading "his"story in a new way, I reccommend this book.
