      Excellent summary chapters that don t assume a ton of previous knowledge of the religions discussed, but not dumbed down either Also valuable for choosing the best possible writers for each chapter Rosemary Ruether for Christianity, Denise Carmody for Judaism, etc , and for having chapters on religions not treated at all in other books on women in religion, such as Confucianism and Taoism.

    2. Victoria says:

      Not sure why anyone thought it was a good idea to edit a volume on world religions while only asking western authors to contribute Full of blatant bias and poor attempts to mask ignorance based on non participation in and a lack of cultural identification with the religions under discussion.
