This would be a very good book about Feminist Theology, indeed it could serve as a very useful introduction to Feminist Theological thinking with regards to Orthodox Christianity, were it not for the inclusion of Daphne Hampson as an author. The problem with Hampson is her anti-orthodox Christian theology stance, and her attacks on her fellow authors who dare to disagree with what she has to say. Whilst she seems to advocate a stance that there is no orthodoxy within Feminism, as feminist theology is a conversation or a continuum, rather than a doctrinal theology, she then attacks those who she accuses of deliberately misunderstanding what she is trying to say, thus undermining her own point about 'conversation'. With contributors like Coakley and the incomparable Janet Martin Soskice, the inclusion of Hampson in this series of essays appears deliberately and unhelpfully provocative.

Had Hampson's essays not been included this book would have been worth five stars. Given her inclusion and her attitude toward her fellow contributors, a generous 3 stars is all I can give it. A real shame, for what should have been an interesting, informative and provocative book on Feminist Theology.
