Women and Spirituality Summary


Women and Spirituality by Carol Ochs

Written by an acclaimed scholar to enrich and complete the vision offered by traditional Western spirituality, Women and Spirituality demonstrates that women, as women, have a valuable contribution to make to religion. This new edition is revised and updated in light of thirteen years of feminism, including new biblical role models and a new chapter on women's special relationship to time. Prodding readers to pay attention to their own experiences, Ochs challenges traditional religious concepts such as solitary struggle, otherworldliness, and the spiritual journey to a distant goal, and shows how women's spirituality focuses on relationships with others, commitment to this world, and engagement with the present.

Ochs's restoring of nurturance to the catalog of spiritually important activities is itself worth the whole book. -- Harvey G. Cox, Harvard University
Ochs offers an engaging and at times inspiring vision of the possibilities for creating a women's spirituality which caters for the needs of today. -- Tina Beattie, University of Bristol * Women's Philosophy Review *
Balanced, polished, and creative . . . Women and Spirituality is a much more subtle and well-crafted book than many that have been written on this subject. -- Susan J. White * Encounter *
