This book explores the impact and contribution of post-theories in the field of Christian feminist theology. Post-theory is an important and cutting-edge discursive field which has revolutionized the production of knowledge in both feminism and theology. This book fills a gap by providing a text that can make authoritative statements on the use and status of post-theory in feminist theology, and secondly it makes an on-going contribution to the discourse of Christian feminist theology and its liberation agenda. Distinguished and established scholars contribute conclusive essays on the most recent and exciting developments in post-theory, feminism and theology.

’Overall, the book is testament to the vibrancy of feminist theology, in being continuous with earlier writings, while demonstrating surefootedness in negotiation of the very different academic and political terrain of the early twenty-first century. The book is useful in making soundings into contemporary feminist theologies, which range from scholarly interventions in a wider discourse to impassioned expression of quintessential feminist consciousness.’ Theological Book Review
