Reviews - What do customers think about A Feminist Ethic of RISK (Other Feminist Voices)?
Stunning. Apr 8, 2000
In this amazing book, Welch constructs an ethic of resistance to injustice within the limits of human finitude. Taking both sides of this tension seriously - the need to oppose oppression and the need to recognize one's limits and limitations - she forges a theology truly adequate to the task of liberation. Her thought-provoking interpretations of African-American literature are a particular strength of the book. For anyone wondering how to maintain hope in the face of massive suffering, this book is a must-read.
