Description
About the Book

This is a book by women about women in the religions of the world. It presents all the basic facts and ideological issues concerning the position of women in the major religious traditions of humanity: Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Taoism, and tribal religions.

A special feature of the book is its phenomenological approach, wherein scholars examine sacred textual materials. Each contributor not only studies her religion from within, but also studies it from her own feminine perspective. Each is an adept historian of religions, who grounds her analysis in publicly verifiable facts. The book strikes a delicate balance between hard fact and delicate perception, in the best tradition of phenomenology and the history of religions. It also demonstrates how much religions may vary over time.

Contributors are Katherine K. Young, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at McGill University; Nancy Schuster Barnes, whose Ph.D. is in Sanskrit and Indian Studies; M. Theresa Kelleher, Assistant Professor of Religion and Asian Studies at Manhattanville College; Barbara Reed, Assistant Professor of Religion at St. Olaf College; Denise L. Carmody, Professor and Chair, Department of Religion, The University of Tulsa. Also Jane !. Smith, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Lecturer in Islamic Studies at Harvard Divinity School; Rosemary Radford Ruether, Georgia Harkness Professor of Applied Theology at the Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary; Rita M. Gross, Associate Professor of Comparative Religions at the University of Wisconsin, Eau Clair.

Preface

This book has been edited by me, but it has been written by others. My attitude to it is marked by the satisfaction one might feel at the birth of a brain child after a gestation period of several years; my attitude to its contributors is marked by silent gratitude on account of the deficiency of language which affects the grateful.

An enterprise such as this can only succeed with the help of many, too numerous to mention. Yet, even at the risk of appearing invidious, I must gratefully acknowledge the following for their interest in the project and their optimism regarding its eventual completion: Alaka Hejib, formerly of McGill; Diana Paul of Stanford; Nancy Falk of West- ern Michigan University-Kalamazoo; Julia Ching of Toronto; Priscilla Ching Chung and Cynthia Y. Ning of Hawaii; Chun-Fang Yu of Rutgers; Katie Carlitz of Pittsburg; Irene Bloom of Columbia; Ellen Ch’en of St. John's University; Judith Plaskow of Manhattan College; Judith A. Berling of Indiana University; Sheila McDonough and Lynn Teskey of Concordia, and Cornelia Dimmitt of Georgetown University.

This book represents the application of the phenomenological stance, with its respect for the insider's view, to the study of women in world religions. That a man should put together a book written by women scholars is potentially male chauvinistic; that none of the women scholars should have even raised an eyebrow is proof that the academia is concerned not with the gender but with what is engendered.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
