Item Description...
Adolescent girls are at particular risk in today's society. They struggle to establish a mature identity after childhood and are barraged with conflicting messages about what it means to be female. In an often hostile and sometimes lethal culture, they also are subject to being exploited, harassed, manipulated, or even abused physically and sexually. But where do religion and spirituality fit? Davis sees spirituality as the realm where girls' ultimate concerns intersect with their daily ones especially with relationships, lifestyle, and religious conviction. Here, based on more than 100 in-depth interviews with girls from a variety of religious, ethnic, and regional backgrounds, Davis shows how religion actually functions both to help and to hurt in girls' search for authenticity. Davis' interviews convey articulately and deeply how spirituality concerns girls' surmounting hurdles to ground and affirm what they become.

Publishers Description
Making the Difference is the first book ever to examine the category of gender as it has been and is now understood in the social sciences and its pertinence for religion and theology. One of the most significant phenomena within Western Christianity over the last generation has been the emergence of feminism and feminist theology. They are sparked by such issues as inclusive language, understandings of God, ordination of women, patriarchal patterns reflected in Christian traditions, and the role of women's experience in religion. Yet, in confronting all these concerns, feminist reflections return inexorably to the debate over the meaning and significant of gender, gender difference, and the social construction of gender. Increasing sophistication in theology and ministry on gender questions requires disciplined attention to how gender itself has been analyzed in anthropology, biology, psychoanalysis, and philosophy. Graham's bright and clear work is a detailed and critical inquiry into these disciplines and their profound import for our understanding of human culture and identity, as well as for theology, church policy, and Christian practice.
