In this well written and compelling book Nicola Slee sets about scientifically documenting the stories of women's faith development by interviewing 30 women. The result is the emergence of patterns in women's faith development which have previously only been seen in glimpses in biographical and poetic expressions; in women's groups or over the kitchen table. It turns out that the principles of feminist theology - notably relationality and authenticity are borne out by Slee's findings, but more compelling is the description of the processes and patterns which uncover and vividly portray phases of alienation (paralysis, impasse), awakening and transformation, among others. Slee's own commitment and attention to detail, her scholarly presentation of the background literature and her extraordinary ability to observe and empathise make this a groundbreaking book which opens up a whole area of rich enquiry for others to develop.

Because I am currently involved in research about pastoral care for female [and male] detainees in Holland I can use this book very well.
