Quo Vadis, Domina?

God or Goddess? Feminist Theology: What Is It? Where Does It Lead?
by Manfred Hauke
translated by David Kipp
San Francisco: Ignatius Press, 1995
(343 pages; $17.95, paper)

reviewed by Stephen Clark

Since the rise in the sixties of what has been called the second feminist movement, there has been an extensive debate in the Christian churches about the identity and the roles of women. At first the focus was on the issues. In recent years increasing attention has been given to feminist theology as a new force among Christians. Of the books written on the subject, perhaps the best is Manfred Hauke’s God or Goddess?

Hauke is Professor of Dogmatics in the Roman Catholic Theological Faculty at Lugano, Switzerland. He is best known as the author of Women in the Priesthood (English translation published by Ignatius Press, 1988), probably the leading study by a Roman Catholic theologian on the ordination of women. In his latest book, he turns from the issues surrounding the ordination of women to the source of the main challenges to Biblical and traditional Christian teaching on the role of women—feminist theology.
