She who is : the mystery of God in feminist theological discourse by Elizabeth A Johnson( Book )

45 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 1,530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The questions this book poses are two: Can the Christian doctrine of God accommodate a thoroughgoing feminist approach? And can feminist theology learn anything from classical Christian discourse about God?
Truly our sister : a theology of Mary in the communion of saints by Elizabeth A Johnson( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first-century Jewish woman Miriam of Nazareth, mother of Jesus, proclaimed in faith to be Theotokos, the God-bearer, is the most celebrated female religious figure in the Christian tradition. So varied and manifold are the traditions about Mary, both popular and scholarly, that some would speak of "Mary" as a collective noun or refer, in George Tavard's memorable title, to The Thousand Faces of the Virgin Mary. In this book on Mary the author offers an interpretation of Mary that is theologically sound, spiritually empowering, ethically challenging, socially liberating, and ecumenically fruitful. In particular, she construes the image of Mary so as to be a source of blessing rather than blight for women's lives in both religious and political terms.--Provided by publisher

27 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friends of God and prophets : a feminist theological reading of the communion of saints by Elizabeth A Johnson( Book )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Friends of God and Prophets, Elizabeth Johnson provides a theology of the communion of saints, utilizing, ironically, women's practices of memory - "ironically" because the official list of saints is largely dominated by men, and "women's history of holiness has been neither remembered nor truthfully told." In the first part of the book, Johnson dialogues with history, gleaning clues from the past for an understanding of the communion of saints that is both faithful to tradition and promising of liberation. In the second, she offers a systematic interpretation of the symbol, connecting insights from history with insights arising from women's practices today, linking both with radical hope in God."--BOOK JACKET
Ask the beasts : Darwin and the god of love by Elizabeth A Johnson( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For millennia, plant and animal species have received little sustained attention as subjects of Christian theology and ethics in their own right. Focused on the human dilemma of sin and redemptive grace, theology has considered the doctrine of creation to be mainly an overture to the main drama of humanity's relationship to God. What value does the natural world have within the framework of religious belief? The crisis of biodiversity in our day, when species are going extinct at more than 1,000 times the natural rate, renders this question acutely important. Standard perspectives need to be realigned; theology needs to look out of the window so to speak, as well as in the mirror. Ask the Beasts: Darwin and the God of Love leads to the conclusion that love of the natural world is an intrinsic element of faith in God and that far from being an add-on, ecological care is at the center of moral life
Quest for the living God : mapping frontiers in the theology of God by Elizabeth A Johnson( Book )

26 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first chapter describes Elizabeth Johnson's point of departure and the rules of engagement, while each succeeding chapter distils a discrete idea of God. Transcendental, political, liberation, feminist, black, Hispanic, interreligious and ecological theologies are all featured, ending with the particular Christian idea of the one God as Trinity. The aim of the book is to increase the light of theological knowledge, "ever ancient, ever new," among a wide circle of people: students, pastoral ministers and everyone who questions, wonders, or thinks about their faith

Touching the hem : a biblical response to physical suffering by Elizabeth A Johnson( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How should you respond to suffering? What does God say about healing? What does God say about suffering? As humans, we are bound to suffer physical affliction on this earth. However, as Christians, what should our response be to that affliction? Should we simply accept it and stoically go on with our lives? Seek help through prayer, but reject medicine? Attend dramatic healing services? Does God still heal sickness today? If so, how do we access His healing? Touching the Hem considers these questions and more. It starts with a thorough look upward at God -- who He claims to be, what He has done for us in the past, and what He promises to do in the future. It then looks at our circumstances, observing physical affliction through the lens of God's Word. Only then does it turn the gaze inward, considering our response to physical suffering, and how to live according to biblical principles. - Publisher
