Quest for the living God : mapping frontiers in the theology of God by Elizabeth A Johnson( )

40 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,897 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
She who is : the mystery of God in feminist theological discourse by Elizabeth A Johnson( Book )

44 editions published between 1992 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 1,517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Put in starkest terms, 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? Johnson's response to the first is to show how feminist theology, drawing on women's interpreted experience and a critical retrieval of elements in Scripture and tradition, can enable speech about God previously closed to the imagination - that it can move the tradition from an androcentric to a genuinely liberating view of God. To the second question Johnson responds by showing how the classical tradition can add density to feminist speech about God, directing attention to the vast scope of divine activity. Women's reality is thus fully capax Dei, capable not only of receiving and bearing the divine but of symbolizing it as well. The achievement of She Who Is is to be found not only in its compelling argument, in its broad learning, in the comfort it will give women and the discomfort it will cause business-as-usual churchmen but also in its rhetorical range and literary skill. Its language is, in turn, powerful, evocative, learned, playful, parenetic, subtle - suitable, insofar as language can ever be, to the dark and gracious mystery it attempts to disclose."--Jacket
Ask the beasts : Darwin and the god of love by Elizabeth A Johnson( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 697 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

29 editions published between 1959 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Truly our sister : a theology of Mary in the communion of saints by Elizabeth A Johnson( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 638 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
Friends of God and prophets : a feminist theological reading of the communion of saints by Elizabeth A Johnson( Book )

25 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 624 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

The strength of her witness : Jesus Christ in the global voices of women( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Gospel of John recounts the story of an encounter between Jesus and a Samaritan woman at the well. After their conversation, she goes out to tell her neighbors about the mysterious stranger, and many of them believed "on the strength of her witness." These essays, drawn from around the world, reveal the many ways that women have reflected on and borne witness to the person, teaching, and praxis of Jesus Christ in light of their own varied contexts. These contexts include their struggles for life amidst wrenching poverty, racism, and violence; their experience of being female in male-dominated structures in the church and society; and their commitment to promote justice in view of the human dignity of women, all done in tandem with their faith relationship with the living God
Abounding in kindness : writings for the people of God by Elizabeth A Johnson( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The holy mystery of God is love beyond imagining. Not enough people seem to know this, even those who practice the Christian religion ..." (from the Introduction). Elizabeth A. Johnson is widely regarded as among the most influential and creative Catholic theologians in the world, particularly for her contributions in bringing a feminist perspective to the central themes of Christian faith. Addressed to the wider "people of God," this anthology of Johnson's essays and lectures--many available for the first time--provides an overview of her essential work, while also offering a brilliantly fresh exploration of the Christian faith. From the question of belief itself, to the mysteries of God, Jesus Christ, and the work of the Holy Spirit, a central theme for Johnson is the overflowing compassion of the living God, engaged with the struggles and suffering of the world. Throughout this collection Johnson's feminist insights, her concerns for an imperiled planet and for those on the margins, add urgency and passion to her reflections. (Publisher)

The essays in this collection advance theological visions for the human task of healing our destructive relationship with the earth and envision hope for our planet's future. (Publisher)
Creation and the cross : the mercy of God for a planet in peril by Elizabeth A Johnson( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this fresh creative approach to theology, Elizabeth Johnson asks how we can understand cosmic redemption in a time of advancing ecological devastation. In effect, how can we extend the core Christian belief in salvation to include all created beings? Immediately this question runs into a formidable obstacle: the idea that Jesus's death on the cross was required as atonement for human sin-- a theology laid out by the eleventh-century theologian St. Anselm. Constructing her argument (like Anselm) in the form of a dialogue, Johnson lays out the foundations in scripture, the teachings of Jesus, and the early Church for an understanding that emphasizes the love and mercy of God, showing how this approach can help us respond to a planet in peril
