    Examining one of the most divisive issues today, The Authority of Women in the Catholic Church details the role of women in the covenant of salvation. Dr. Monica Migliorino Miller defines authentic feminine authority with the support of Scripture, the writings of the Church Fathers, contemporary theological insights, and historical witnesses to the role of women in the Catholic Church.

    Exploring the meanings of both authority and sexuality, Miller’s presentation highlights the significance of women and explains how women exemplify the reality of the Church in relation to Christ and the ministerial priesthood. The author engages modern feminist theologies with clarity and precision, articulating a response to the claims of gender irrelevance and more. The Authority of Women in the Catholic Church affirms the dignity of all women, indicates their place within the Church, and explores possibilities for the future.

    Miller’s book does not just advocate a ‘role’ for women in the Church. As the title indicates, she explains what authority women already have. This is not a polemical or apologetic work but one that engages feminist theology with a wonderfully creative, deeply theological and biblically-based explanation of what authority means and how fe­male authority differs from, yet is in relation to, male authority.

    The Catholic Table: Finding Joy Where Food and Faith Meet

    Every one of us has to eat. Some of us eat too much food. Or we eat too little. Sometimes we eat without gratitude, without charity, or without respect. But, as award-winning author Emily Stimpson Chapman explains in The Catholic Table, with a sacramental worldview, the supernatural gift of God’s grace can transform and heal us through the food we make, eat, and share.

    In The Catholic Table: Finding Joy Where Food and Faith Meet, you’ll discover a theology of food through the personal experience of the author and the wisdom of Scripture, the Saints, and more. Stimpson Chapman’s insightful survey of America’s food landscape is informed by the understanding of food as a sign and sacrament. As she explains, “There is nothing ordinary about food. By God’s grace, the simplest bowl of soup and the humblest hunk of cheese have the power to become an occasion of grace, drawing friends and family together around a shared table to build a shared life.”

    The Church’s teachings on grace, the Eucharist, the virtues, fasting, hospitality, and the body are integral to how we consume our daily bread and lead us to peace, joy, and community (“and,” the author writes, “some really good dinners”). As Emily Stimpson Chapman explores these topics in The Catholic Table, she provides a delightfully written and meaningful framework for understanding feasting, fasting, and all the eating in between.

    The Catholic Table serves up a banquet of good sense infused with theology, blending practical advice with startling insights into our relationship with food—and on the side, what else but recipes? This is Emily Stimpson at her witty, well-educated, accessible best.
