Item description for The Feminist Question by Mrs. Francis Martin...
The first work to undertake a theological critique of Christian feminism as a whole, this book seeks to bring traditional faith and the feminist position into a deeper dialogue. Part One presents an overview of the historical issues raised by feminist theology. Part Two compares key feminist theological presuppositions to the prophetic interpretation of reality found in the biblical tradition.

Comment on the critical April 1, 2003 review Mar 14, 2005
In her this site review, "a reader" wrote: "John S. Grabowski wrote 'Theological Anthropology And Gender Since Vatican TWo'. On pages 389-392 Martin describes the pope's teaching in EXACTLY THE SAME WORDS that Grabowski uses in his book on pages 320-326. He wrote his book in 1991 and Martin wrote his in 1994. I thought that was totally illegal. ..."
In the acknowledgements (pg xviii), Fr. Martin mentions Grabowski as a friend who has "taken the trouble to read parts of this book and engage in conversation about it." I suspect that the adoption of Grabowski's words as his own was not done "on the sly" or with any sort of malice or intent to deceive, and I do not believe it compromises the integrity of the book's scholarship.
Best Book on Feminist Theology Aug 13, 2003
This is simply one of the best critiques available of feminist theology. Martin is not unsympathetic to feminist concerns, but he carefully and thoughtfully shows the theological and historical weaknesses of feminist ideology. Highly recommended.
Very conservative writer is a [copier] Apr 1, 2003
This book is frustrating to read. I would not bother except that it was recomended for my research paper. It is written in an obscure style and from an ultra-conservative perspective. Martin is against most feminism but what was even more disturbing was our discovery that he [copied]several pages of the book. I discovered it when my boy friend borrowed the book. He stopped by Regina Hall last night and showed me annother book that he got from inter library loan. John S. Grabowski wrote "Theological Anthropology And Gender Since Vatican TWo". On pages 389-392 Martin describes the pope's teaching in EXACTLY THE SAME WORDS that Grabowski uses in his book on pages 320-326. He wrote his book in 1991 and Martin wrote his in 1994. I thought that was totally illegal. Students get flunked for it but here is a teach getting away with it. My boy friend said he found other places too. Shame on Martin.
