Coakley is a Cambridge lady, no question. Her bridging of patristic and systematic theology with analytic philosophy of religion and critical theory makes the moves that, by now, we've come to expect. As the Radical Orthodox have grown reactionary and predictable, and subsequent trends in feminist constructive theology have pushed further into poetry and pluralism, Coakley's flexible and original orthodo This collection, even a decade-plus after its publication in this form, feels utterly fresh.
As the Radical Orthodox have grown reactionary and predictable, and subsequent trends in feminist constructive theology have pushed further into poetry and pluralism, Coakley's flexible and original orthodoxy looks better and better. It hurts my heart a little to see her footnotes claiming God, Sexuality, and the Self as a forthcoming volume. Come on, Cambridge and Coakley. Bring the book out.

Back cover copy In this volume, Sarah Coakley confronts a central paradox of theological feminism-what she terms 'the paradox of power and vulnerability'.
Drawing together an essential collection of her work in this field. Powers and Submissions explores this theme, offering an original perspective on contemporary feminist thought. Gender theory has in recent years given an increasingly nuanced account of the worldly 'powers' that serve to stifle human flourishing. However, feminist theology ha been loath to acknowledge that form of surrender to divine 'power' which can alone sustain authentic human freedom, and chasten the abusive will to power in both women and men. Powers and Submissions tackles their question of how these narratives of divine and human 'powers' should be disentangled.
Coakley examines this issue through the lens of spiritual practice, philosophical enquiry and doctrinal analysis, arguing that contemplative practice must be sustaining matrix of any truly liberative human empowerment. Powers and Submissions will be of interest to those working and studying in the fields of feminist theory, philosophy of religion, systematic theology and spirituality.

Review quote "I am tremendously impressed by Sarah Coakleya s book. It makes a bridge between the naive prephilosophical version of crucial beliefs and current work on feminist theology which is very arcane to the outsider. Saraha s clarity of expression and her tough style of argument are a delight. It is wonderful how well these separate essays follow on one another and have so much continuity. In Powers and Submissions Coakley draws on the riches of the Christian tradition as well as contemporary theology to challenge the tendency in modern theology to separate theology and prayer.
What a wonderful book. Coakleya s work is exemplarily dialogue.
Indeed, the abiding impression is of a brilliant and magnanimous hostess who is given to bring together the sort of people who would not ordinarily have anything to do with each other. Like an ideal hostess, she listens generously to each and tries to construe what they say in the best possible light, but she has strong and clear views of her own, which she ultimately articulates with considerable persusive authority.
She is currently working on a systematic theology, the first volume of which will appear as God, Sexuality and the Self: An Essay a On the Trinitya forthcoming. Rating details. Book ratings by Goodreads. Goodreads is the world's largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews.
