Item description for Reconciling Catholicism and Feminism?: Personal Reflections on Tradition and Change by Sally Barr Ebest, Ron Ebest & Sandra M. Gilbert...

IN THIS TIMELY COLLECTION OF ESSAYS, twenty-two widely respected writers, historians, theologians, and feminists thoughtfully reflect on their own personal experiences with the Catholic Church. The essayists movingly describe how they have, or in some cases have not, come to terms with a church that does not permit them full participation. In so doing, they offer practical suggestions for ways in which the church can become more open to the concerns of its progressive members. Among the essayists and essays featured in this collection are Rosemary Radford Ruether, who provides a brief history of twentieth-century reform movements; internationally-known Irish journalist Mary Kenny, who writes on the abortion debate in Ireland; Pulitzer Prize-winner Madeleine Blais, who discusses her youth in parochial schools; short-story writer and New Yorker contributor Jean McGarry, who describes the clash of Catholic and secular cultures; and Grail co-founder Janet Kalven, who depicts the history of this widely recognized religious reform movement. A foreword by Sandra Gilbert and an introduction by Sally Barr Ebest and Ron Ebest provide context for these personal and poignant essays. In a format that is easily accessible to general readers, Reconciling Catholicism and Feminism? explores issues of concern to progressive and feminist Catholics, including abortion, birth control, clerical celibacy, and the ordination of women.

Reviews - What do customers think about Reconciling Catholicism and Feminism?: Personal Reflections on Tradition and Change?

How the Catholic Church today impacts individual lives  Jan 15, 2004
Compiled and edited by Sally Barr Ebest (Associate Professor of English and Director of the Writing Program at the University of Missouri-St. Louis) and Ron Ebest (Instructor of Literature and Writing at the University of Missouri-St. Louis), Reconciling Catholicism And Feminism? Personal Reflections On Tradition And Change presents thoughtful and thought-provoking essays drawn from twenty-two educated writers, historians, theologians, and feminists, concerning their diverse and personal experiences with the Catholic Church, and how they have or have not come to accept the terms of a church that restricts them in some aspects. Cogently addressing the controversial issues of abortion, birth control, clerical celibacy, and the ordination of women, Reconciling Catholicism And Feminism? is an impressive presentation of how the Catholic Church today impacts the individual lives of women.
 
not a reconciliation at all  Nov 21, 2003
This book is not a reconciliation of Catholocism and feminism as the title suggests, but rather an attempt to conform the Roman Catholic Church to feminist ideals. Editors and contributors seem to have little knowledge of the theological reasoning behind Church teaching or the function of Chruch hierarchy. Arguments on abortion, birth control, and women's ordination are one-sided, and do not reflect the beauty of the Church's view of sexuality, such as John Paul II's Theology of the Body. This book does not reconcile Catholocism and feminism, but only divides them further.
