'Can Women Re-Image the Church?' is a bold and provocative exploration for women within the church who feel alienated by traditional patriarchal theology. This book speaks of a new vision, a new way of thinking that incorporates the voices and thoughts of women within a theological world that understands and supports them. Through a process called re-imaging, author Rosemary Chinnici separates the reality of the feminine experience from the centuries-old and sometimes stilted beliefs that have been handed down to us. She uses the principles of psychology that include women's voices and sets them in dialogue with feminist theology. According to Chinnici, every woman has the right and the authority to use her own experience as the basis for re-imaging. It is an ongoing and dynamic revelation that offers a positive gift to the community. This work details the lives of four women. Each tells her own story, examines her own experience, and speaks her own voice as she recognizes how and where traditional theology has shortchanged her. In this examination of their crisis-filled moments and subsequent anger, guilt, and alienation, the reader is able to experience firsthand what the re-imaging process involves. This fine and accessible book is an indispensable resource for spiritual seekers willing to uncover and integrate into daily life the powerful insights of women in the church.

Women are capable of defending themselves and their loved ones--if they learn how. It is not the female's size, it is her culturally induced ignorance that makes her think she is helpless. This book is a clarion call to "sleeping beauties" to wake up and take charge of their own self-defense--both verbal and physical--and celebrates women (and kids) who fought back. Funny and provocative, this is an irreverent but deadly serious look at how family, religion, history, news and entertainment keep women thinking they are defenseless.--From publisher description.
