Item Description...
"Taking Gal. 3:28 as her text, the argument is that 'women's subordination and inequality' are 'contrary to the radical message of the freedom of the gospel.' Accordingly, feminist theology is not an 'alternative lifestyle' pitch by a few problem women, but a 'new, liberating way of looking at God and the world for everyone.''

Publishers Description
Weaving together history, liberation and process theology, and biblical studies, Webb introduces feminist thought as an affirmation of the early church's commitment to the equality of all believers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
equal  Jan 11, 2007
Webb succeeds in raising the intellectual consideration of the human condition of women in our current culture. For millenia men humans have held sway with their manufatured yet false fears in order to control the world and it's people. The Matriarchal culture that existed before the patriarchals took power was more advanced; but, backward we slid so we could once again experience ourselves as the grand creation that we are.
We are seeing the shift toward sanity even though it seems slow to those who still think in "time" constructs. The reality is that sanity already is when we are willing to look at it as a species. It does not seem that this will be simultaneous but really it will be.
Peace will be............... peace already is.
An excellent introduction to Christian feminism and Eve!  Nov 3, 1999
Val Webb has written a book for people who dismiss Feminist Theology, take it for granted, or perceive it as the enemy. "Why We're Equal" from this perspective provides more than an introduction to feminist theology; it introduces people to why they should even begin to care about being introduced to Feminist Theology. With wit, compassion and humor, Webb explores the prejudgments grounding women's inequality in Christian traditions. Clearly setting herself apart from the idea of one politically correct essence of feminism, Webb orients her exploration through the concepts of feminisms, which constitute a multifaceted variety of feminists and feminist issues, some even in conflict with each other. She doesn't convince readers of feminist theology's merits through a single argument. Rather, the book surrounds readers with many women who believed in their heritage as God's people to act, whatever the circumstances. In days of increasing social polarization, backlash and retrenchment within cultural war-zones, Webb's sorely needed good-will approach elicits trust from readers and creates a safe-space for exploration. Few theologians can weave together history, theology and biblical studies with such playful clarity and wisdom. A theological artist, Webb invites readers to past worlds, always with an eye to future worlds, which prove compelling enough to take a step. Readers will undertake the journey because they want to travel with her. The invigorating character of Webb's book flows from her clear, clever and accessible style of writing. Study questions provide opportunities for individual and group discussions, the appendix provides an international framework for viewing women's history and the epilogue neatly summarizes all her major theological arguments. Definitely for adult education, the book also serves college needs, particularly for theological units geared toward students from non-theological programs. For the first time or for an envigorating return, "Why We're Equal" provides a compelling introduction to Christian feminism.
