Reviews - What do customers think about Horizons in Feminist Theology?
Great book! Oct 9, 2009
This is a wonderful book which deals with issues of cultural theory relevant to recent feminist theory. In particular, the realization that neither subjects nor cultures have fixed, stable identities are addressed well, and the authors come from a variety of social locations, incorporating a variety of perspectives. Highly recommend.
