Baylor Women in Theology Collection (4 vols.)•
Baylor University Press 2006–2011
The Baylor Women in Theology collection hilights the important role women have played in the traditionally male-dominated discipline of theology—and demonstrates their significance for its future. This collection introduces women who challenged prevailing notions through their passionate ministries, academic explorations, and other works of theology.
Kendal P. Mobley’s biography of Helen Barrett Montgomery describes the intrepid life of a social reformer and Baptist intellectual who left an indelible mark on the ecumenical missionary movement. In Saving Women: Retrieving Evangelistic Theology and Practice, Laceye C. Warner presents the lives of other women who spread the gospel as preachers, missionaries, educators, activists, and reformers.
For much of history, theological academia was shut off to women. Nevertheless, many found their voice in the female characters of the Old Testament—Eve, Sarah, Hagar, Rebekah, Leah, Rachel—and practiced theology subversively through poetry, hymns, and commentaries. In Let Her Speak for Herself: Nineteenth-Century Women Writing on Women in Genesis, Marion Ann Taylor and Heather E. Weir collect primary sources demonstrating the ways these writers challenged the traditional understanding of women’s lives through the stories of these biblical figures.
You’ll also find essays exploring the contributions of female theologians throughout the history of the church—from early and medieval mystical writings and hagiographies to modern monographs by the women of theological academia.
