'Daphne Hampson is without doubt one of the foremost contemporary feminist theologians.' -- Prof. Grace M. Jantzen (Univ. of Manchester) in Women's Philosophy Review
'No theologian should evade the very deep metaphysical issues in Hampson's book.' -- Fergus Kerr OP (The Regent, Blackfriars, Oxford) in New Blackfriars
From the Publisher
Given much demand for it's re-issue, we are glad to publish a second edition of this highly original and provocative book. Daphne Hampson is widely considered the leading European feminist theologian and the leading post-Christian theologian internationally. After Christianity is a landmark text and her major statement to date. In a new introduction Hampson draws together the main lines of her argument and responds to critics.See all Product Description

Reading the book, I was delighted to discover that I felt like I was eavesdropping on a lively and fascinating conversation. The ideas of great theologians are drawn in to a dialogue which includes feminist psychoanalysts and also friends of the author and people she encountered over dinner. Theologians whose books and ideas have inspired and shaped my own dip in and out of the conversation along with those I'd never heard of and those I never liked. A second edition has allowed discussion of how the ideas in first have been received and adds depth to the conversation.
I feel I wouldn't be playing fair if I didn't say to you that it's terrifyingly complex, it's not as simple as the caricature I had in my head of post-Christianity (of course it would not be). Don't let that put you off, it's not one of those bafflingly obscure theology books that will leave you shipwrecked on a tangent. You may arrive at the end shaken and dazed but the tightly knit logical structure will not allow you to be lost on route. Indeed, the introduction to the second edition provides the reader with a guide to the journey on which they are about to embark.
Hampson offers a glimpse of different way of speaking about God and being spiritual. This is no slamming of doors on that which one loves but a cool calm look at what is harmful in ones tradition and a moving away to do something new, to work for justice another way.
I have chosen not to follow Daphne but to stay within Christianity.Read more ›
