THE FEMININE FACE OF CHRISTIANITY
Early Christianity was fundamentally egalitarian but later influences con-spired to curtail the role of women in the Church. Starbird seeks to reclaim the gender-balanced Christianity implicit in the Gospels. Comprehensive and challenging, this work presents women of faith who have led by example, and whose powerful messages are still relevant today. Martyrs, mystics, scholars, activists, virgins, wives and mothers - they incarnate the great themes of Christianity: the presence of the Spirit and the sanctity of human life. The book details how issues of social justice and environmental concerns can provide a platform for Christian women's voices in the modern world. At the threshold of the third Christian millennium we pause to examine the contributions of passionate women who have embraced the “Way” and walked its journey of faith. The book is enhanced by numerous fine art illustrations, quotations and practical suggestions for enhancing the faith journey of contemporary Christians.
