Availability: Ready to download

I am going to suggest that the culminating contribution of the second millennium, the defining characteristic of the twentieth century, and the most important source of energy for the immediate future is the emergence of women, the beginning of the recognition of the full personhood of half the human family, writes Sandra Schneiders in the introduction to the 2000 Madeleva I am going to suggest that the culminating contribution of the second millennium, the defining characteristic of the twentieth century, and the most important source of energy for the immediate future is the emergence of women, the beginning of the recognition of the full personhood of half the human family, writes Sandra Schneiders in the introduction to the 2000 Madeleva Lecture, a series that has been as groundbreaking as it has been thought provoking. Writing with her characteristic clarity, foresightedness and intelligence, the author examines some of the deeply transformative effects of feminism on both twentieth-century America and the postconciliar church, and explores how a Gospel-informed feminism can offer a new vision of humanity, church and world for a new century. This 2000 Madeleva lecture will lay the groundwork for a discussion called Convergence 2000 to be held at St. Mary's College the day following the lecture. All previous Madeleva lecturers will meet to collaborate on a Statement for Women in the Twenty-First Century, which is sure to be widely publicized. This lecture will be especially popular because of its widely known and respected author. Women and men owe it to themselves to read this engaging, visionary work.

    I found this in the Free pile in the corner of a used book store in Valley Forge, PA. There may or may not be something allegorical in this, but in any case should show us that a book without a reputation is not therefore a book without merit, because this is intensely interesting and would be challenging, I think, to anyone on the face of the earth: there are simply not, to my knowledge, that many ardent Feminist Roman Catholics with a concern for universal social justice and the prophetic role I found this in the Free pile in the corner of a used book store in Valley Forge, PA.
