Goddesses and the divine feminine : a Western religious history by Rosemary Radford Ruether( )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 2,859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This landmark work presents the most illuminating portrait we have to date of goddesses and sacred female imagery in Western culture - from prehistory to contemporary goddess movements. Beautifully written, lucidly conceived, and far-ranging in its implications, this work will help readers gain a better appreciation of the complexity of the social forces - mostly androcentric - that have shaped the symbolism of the sacred feminine. At the same time, it charts a new direction for finding a truly egalitarian vision of God and human relations through a feminist-ecological spirituality. Rosemary Radford Ruether begins her exploration of the divine feminine with an analysis of prehistoric archaeology that challenges the popular idea that, until their overthrow by male-dominated monotheism, many ancient societies were matriarchal in structure, governed by a feminine divinity and existing in harmony with nature. For Ruether, the historical evidence suggests the reality about these societies is much more complex. She goes on to consider key myths and rituals from Sumerian, Babylonian, Egyptian, and Anatolian cultures; to examine the relationships among gender, deity, and nature in the Hebrew religion; and to discuss the development of Mariology and female mysticism in medieval Catholicism, and the continuation of Wisdom mysticism in Protestanism. She also gives a provocative analysis of the meeting of Aztec and Christian female symbols in Mexico and of today's neo-pagan movements in the United States

"How did a religion whose founding proponents advocated a shocking disregard of earthly ties come to extol the virtues of the "traditional" family?

20 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"America, Amerikkka traces the historical and ideological patterns of the U.S. American view of themselves as an elect nation inhabiting a 'promised land' and enjoying a uniquely favored relation with God and a mission to spread 'redemption' qua 'democracy' throughout the world. This view of unique election has been coupled with racial exclusivism privileging and marginalizing non-whites as citizens of the nation."--BOOK JACKET
Christianity and social systems : historical constructions and ethical challenges by Rosemary Radford Ruether( )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the earliest interactions of Christians with the Roman Empire to today's debates about the separation of church and state, the Christian churches have been in complex relationships with various economic and political system for centuries. Renowned theologian Rosemary Radford Ruether analyzes the ways Christian churches historically interacted with powerful systems such as patriarchy, racism, slavery and environmentalism, while looking critically at how the church shapes these systems today. This book is neither an attack on the relationship between Christianity and these systems nor an apology bur rather a nuanced examination of the interactions between them. By understanding how these interactions have shaped history, we can more fully understand how to make ethical decisions about the role of Christianity in some of today's most pressing social issues."--Jacket

In her most significant work to date, Rosemary Radford Ruether sifts through the legacy of the Christian and Western cultural heritage - the beliefs and stories that have influenced our relationships with each other and with the earth - to illuminate future models for earth healing.

Introducing redemption in Christian feminism by Rosemary Radford Ruether( )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 890 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christianity begins with what appears to be an inclusive promise of redemption in Christ without regard to gender. Paul proclaimed that 'In Christ there is no more male and female.' Yet Christianity soon developed a patriarchal social structure, excluding women from public ministry, with the argument that women were created subordinate in nature and were more culpable for sin. Here, distinguished feminist theologian, Rosemary Ruether, traces the tension between patriarchal and egalitarian patterns in Christian theology historically. She then examines key theological themes--Christology, the self, the cross and future hope--in the light of her critique
