Item description for Beyond Nice by Patricia H. Davis...

In this sensitive and discerning book, based on more than 100 in-depth interviews with girls from a variety of religious, ethnic and regional backgrounds, Davis shows how religion actually functions both to help and to hurt in girls' search for authenticity. As she characterizes girls' ideas about God, spirituality, sexuality and bodies, and violence, Davis's interviews convey how spirituality concerns girls' surmounting hurdles to ground and affirm what they become.

Publishers Description
Making the Difference is the first book ever to examine the category of gender as it has been and is now understood in the social sciences and its pertinence for religion and theology. One of the most significant phenomena within Western Christianity over the last generation has been the emergence of feminism and feminist theology. They are sparked by such issues as inclusive language, understandings of God, ordination of women, patriarchal patterns reflected in Christian traditions, and the role of women's experience in religion. Yet, in confronting all these concerns, feminist reflections return inexorably to the debate over the meaning and significant of gender, gender difference, and the social construction of gender. Increasing sophistication in theology and ministry on gender questions requires disciplined attention to how gender itself has been analyzed in anthropology, biology, psychoanalysis, and philosophy. Graham's bright and clear work is a detailed and critical inquiry into these disciplines and their profound import for our understanding of human culture and identity, as well as for theology, church policy, and Christian practice.
