Item description for Beyond Patching: Faith and Feminism in the Catholic Church (Anthony Jordan Lectures) by Ihm Sandra M. Schneiders...

Overview
Asserts that the current half-hearted attempts to patch up the excruciating tensions due to the sometimes morally unacceptable way women are treated in the Catholic Church must be replaced with a whole-hearted renewal or the Church stands in danger of losing touch with many of its women. Reissue.

Publishers Description
Here is a revised edition of a landmark text by one of our most distinguished authors and theologians. In BEYOND PATCHING, Sandra Schneiders clarifies the language and concerns of feminist spirituality and effectively addresses the excruciating tensions that have arisen because of the sometimes morally unacceptable way that women are treated in the Church. She asserts that the current halt-hearted attempts to "patch" things up must be replaced with a whole-hearted renewal, or the Church stands in danger of losing touch with many of its women. BEYOND PATCHING supports meaningful change by presenting the feminist theological agenda in a manner that does not undermine the foundations of Christian faith. It includes such fundamental theological problems as the function of scripture for women once its patriarchal and misogynist content has been identified, the spiritual struggle of women who feel alienated by the church, and Catholic feminism in relation to the larger feminist movement. BEYOND PATCHING is an excellent tool that not only gives hope to women but serves as a warning to Church authorities: just as an old garment can be beyond repair, so, too, the Church, in this case, is beyond patching.

Reviews - What do customers think about Beyond Patching: Faith and Feminism in the Catholic Church (Anthony Jordan Lectures)?

Sadly Disappointed  Mar 14, 2006
Once again, the post-modern bitter (for that's its authentic tone) feminist movement has produced yet another text championing the "vast strides" of feminism which seeks to destroy the actual feminine of feminism.

A few simple questions to ask if you embark on reading this book:
Does the author even enjoy being a woman?
Does she have a sense of gratification that comes from the acknowledgement that women and men are pysiologically, anatomically and endocrinologically and resultantly, behaviorally different?
Is there an underlying exercise of feminine suppression: the suppression of feminine characteristics related to homones produced from the female reproductive system often referred to by sociologists as "gender identification"?

It seems that the theories contained in this book are just like so many unoriginal and tired theories that encourage women to act like men and thus suppress any natural feminine characteristics.
