Bringing together issues of religion and life, politics and personal identity, feminism and liberation theology, Dorothee Soelle presents a powerful critique of modern society, striking at dehumanizing elements that combine to oppress both women and men. Over the years, Dr. Soelle has challenged European and American readers with incisive commentary on a variety of social, ethical, literary, and theological topics. This work embodies the constant drive to radicalization and the passionate involvement that have always been the hallmark of her writing.
The book is divided into two sections. The first concerns issues of faith and society; the second, foundations of a feminist theology. Although a wide range of ideas are represented, the challenges made to established ways of thinking, speaking, and acting are concrete and specific. This direct yet profound volume addresses the most important matters of our time, commanding the attention of individuals, study groups, and teachers.
