Most of the papers in this volume were given at a day conference held at Heythrop College, aimed at discussing challenging women's orthodoxies in the context of faith. The book acts as an indication that gender matters in the understanding and living of faith.
Accounting for hope - feminist theology as fundamental theology; theology and earth system science; justification by gender - Daphne Hampson's "After Christianity"; the rehabilitation of Eve - British "Christian women's" theology; when God beheld God - notes towards a Jewish feminist theology of the Holocaust; harmony in Africa - healing the divided continental self - Mercy Amba Oduyoye, feminist and theologian; the mute cannot keep silent - Barth, von Balthasar and Irigaray on the construction of women's silence; losing one's life for others - self-sacrifice revisted; touching upon the soul - the interiority of trancsendance after Luce Irigaray; on the nature of nature - is sexual difference really necessary; the grace of being - connectivity and agency in John Macquarrie's theology; the power of Christian innocence - revisiting a classical theme; healing the wound - discourses of redemption.
