Reid, OP (Grand Rapids) has just published Taking Up the
Cross: New Testament Interpretations through Latina and Feminist Eyes.
Her book is available from Augsburg

Jesus through conversation with the voices of women from Mexico, Bolivia,
and Peru and examination of the roles of women in the New Testament accounts.

a liberative constructive theology.

published by Liturgical Press titledGod
in the World: A Guide to Karl Rahner’s
Theology. Karl Rahner (1904-1984) was a Jesuit priest who wrote
