Item description for Out of the Depths: Women's Experience of Evil and Salvation by Ivone Gebara & Ann Patrick Ware...
Overview Whether understood as sin, as embracing all manner of suffering and injustice, or as the inexplicable human choice of evil over good, evil has historically been described and pondered chiefly through male categories understood as a universal viewpoint. Likewise salvation. Gebara here presents an alternative, feminist approach to evil and salvation. She allows women to voice their personal suffering from their own contexts, thereby manifesting their many differences. She then introduces a perspective on evil and salvation based in gender analysis to address specifically "the evil women do," the evil they suffer, and women's redemptive experiences of God and salvation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Out of the Depths: Women's Experience of Evil and Salvation?
Respect Nov 30, 2002
This book's low Christology urges daily concrete salvations that address the oppression of women in the physical world of daily subsistence. In doing so there are multiple crucifixions and salvations that will include women, deviating significantly from the author's Roman Catholic life experience. The author conflates evil with tragedy and suffering. It argues for plurality of discourse without a universal statement that results in exlusivity. It calls for respect for all women.
