              Kristine Rankka has produced a masterpiece--an insightful analysis of modern feminist interpretations of 'radical' or 'tragic' suffering. Here is a mature work, comprehensive in its breadth, compelling in its argument, moving in its palpable sensitivity, poetic and graceful in it...s articulation. By invoking the category of the 'tragic, ' Rankka proposes a mystical-political spirituality to move reflection on suffering from the private, to the communal, interdependent realm. Rankka's _Women and the Value of Suffering_ is a creative retrieval of a conversation among women, long in progress, about the meaning of life's suffering. It is eminently readable and thoroughly enriching! George E. Griener, S.J. Academic dean Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley

              Quilting and Braiding (Trade Paperback / Paperback, illustrated edition)

              Can a male savior save women? In answering this profound question, and as a way of engaging women and men who seek a deeper understanding of the role of Jesus Christ in contemporary Christianity, Quilting alibi Braiding explores the christologies of pivotal feminist theologians -...- Sallie McFague and Elizabeth A. Johnson -- and examines the impact of feminist christology on the entire field of theology. For centuries scholars have studied, debated, and articulated their understanding of the life, message, and impact of Jesus Christ (incarnation and salvation). In Quilting and Braiding, Shannon Schrein examines critical questions arising from feminist thought that address these core Christian beliefs. She explores the constructivist christology of McFague and the revisionist christology of Johnson and examines how each makes use of language, particularly metaphor and analogy, in addressing the christological concerns of women today. Drawing its imagery from practices that have typically been a part of women's heritage -- quilting and braiding -- this work forms a footbridge between tradition and contemporary concerns, bringing the study of christology into the lives of God's people.
