Sexism and God Talk by Rosemary Radford Ruether

This product was recommended by James Black from Wilderness Redefined

Extremely erudite and well-researched, but at the same time pleasingly easy to read, she explains – with ample reference to well-known religious/historical figures and events – just how successful the Founders of Christianity and their forerunners created the patriarchal societies of Christendom – and beyond.


Feminist Theology (Guides to Theology) by Natalie Watson

This product was recommended by Ashi from Cruelty Free Guide

This is quite easy to read & understand, especially for a newbie. It talks about gender issues and traditions. Feminist Theology takes a dive into the female perspective of the things which are mostly male dominant.


She Who Is by Elizabeth A. Johnson

This product was recommended by Caroline from CocoSign

She Who is; The Mystery of God in Feminist Theological Discourse by Elizabeth A Johnson- Johnson advances one of the most liberal Christian ideologies in this book. She argues, and convincingly so for the use of female ideas and terminologies within the Christian context.


Jesus Feminist by Sarah Bessey

This product was recommended by Caroline from CocoSign

Jesus Feminist; An Invitation to Revisit the Bible’s view of women by Sarah Bessey- Bessey has one of the best writing styles within the niche. It speaks to the heart. Her book introspects into women’s role in Christianity and provides an argument for rethinking the feminist approach to changing the views of Christianity on feminism.


Awakening the Soul of Power by Christian de la Huerta

This product was recommended by Christian de la Huerta from Soulful Power

“It is a rare occurrence indeed when a book not only delivers on its message but also gives you practical, straightforward and incredibly wise ways in which to apply the teachings put forth in /Awakening the Soul of Power/. I found it to be an introspective work that is a balm for the soul of anyone searching for truth and answers to life’s difficult questions, and truly look forward to the rest of Christian de la Huerta’s amazing Calling All Heroes series. It inspired me to purchase his previous book, /Coming Out Spiritually: The Next Step/. The book’s message about authentic self-expression and personal empowerment will resonate with your readers, who may have struggled with issues around relationships, self-doubt, or a sense of purpose, among others. It explores how we step into power in a different way that’s not about hierarchy, control, fear, force and domination. On a personal level, the book’s message will help your readers transform their relationship to power so that they can stop selling out on their personal power and free themselves from self-sabotaging behaviors. It will help them heal toxic relationship patterns and negotiate power struggles more effectively. On a macro scale, issues of power and the abuse of power have been integral to this election cycle. Globally, power is up for all of us to look at—and choose: What kind of leadership do we want?
