Publishers Description 'This Festschrift by former students, friends and colleagues celebrates the many rich aspects of Ann Loades' wide-ranging contributions to the life of the academy, the church and the wider community. Readers are invited into a graceful dance of dialogical reflections on the multi-faceted perspectives and experiences of the Christian tradition. This illuminating collection of essays covers a wide variety of contemporary concerns in theology, spirituality and ethics at both an intellectual and practical level. A treasure trove of insights and ideas, it is a fitting tribute to a career of remarkable achievements.' Ursula King, Professor Emerita of Theology and Religious Studies, University of Bristol 'This is a most well-deserved Festschrift, both for the regard and respect in which its recipient is plainly held, and for the breadth of her lifelong interests which give the book plenty of scope. A large range of topics turns out to be relevant for celebrating the work of one scholar. Feminism and the problem of evil are major themes; and practicalconcerns are never far away.' Helen Oppenheimer 'Reading these essays brings one up to the growing edge of theology and shows its future directions. The essays, contributed by Ann Loades's friends, interlocutors, colleagues, and students, carry forward her own balanced way of doing theology. They integrate hard thinking with lived faith. They respect the "voices from the past" but help restore the lost voices of women. They think critically but refuse to water down the claims of faith. They give the "real" world its due but do not surrender faith's right to criticize secular norms. The book truly is a fascinating tour of topics in current theology, and the diversity--and, indeed, prominence--of contributors is a great tribute to Ann. Highly recommended.' Edward H. Henderson, Professor of Philosophy, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge 'Exchanges of Grace contains a collection of creative and often unconventional essays in sacramental theology and spirituality. Each essay of the Festschrift can be studied individually but David W. Brown's brilliant introduction renders this book an informative commentary to Ann Loades's constructive theology.' Sven-Erik Brodd, Professor of Ecclesiology, University of Uppsala, Sweden
