Elizabeth A. Johnson (Author)

Elizabeth A. Johnson, C.S.J., is a distinguished Professor of Theology at Fordham University in New York. She has served as President of the Catholic Theological Society of America and is the author of several books, including Consider Jesus: Waves of Renewal in Christology (Crossroad/Herder & Herder)

  1. “As perhaps the best book of feminist theology to date, She Who Is is at once thoroughly orthodox, grounded in classical Christian thought, liberatingly contemporary, and rooted in Women’s experience.”
    --Library Journal
  2. "'What is the right way to speak about God in the face of women’s newly cherished human dignity and equality? This is the crucial theological question.’  Johnson’s response is to range far and wide from the early church all the way to the present day to unearth God as She Who Is, the ‘creative, relational power of being who enlivens, suffers with, sustains, and enfolds the universe’ . . . Readers will find this incisive survey to be the finest yet written in the area of feminist theological discourse.”
  3. “The most substantial and sophisticated effort yet undertaken to connect ‘feminist and classical wisdom’ in a synthesis at once bold and discerning, critical and doxological, at once engaged with the classical sources of Christian theology and committed to a vision of Christianity pervasively and profoundly marked by feminist values . . . [Johnson] has performed the most fundamental function of a true theologian, which is to provide a vision of God worthy of prayer.”
