Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus: Miriam's Child, Sophia's Prophet : Critical Issues in Feminist Christology?
Better than i expected Apr 10, 2000
I had to read this for one of my religion classes, and i wasn't expecting it to be very interesting. However, once i got into the book, i found it to be very compelling. Fiorenza's insightful comments have made me go back and question what exactly is implied in the Gospels. She has done a fine job of pointing out that the patriarchal ideals found in Christianity were first found "in the context of the Greek city-state". One warning about this book: it's written for the academic community, and because of that, it doesn't make for easy reading.
