In a penetrating analysis Dr Hampson shows that Christianity cannot be true, for it requires a particular revelation which we can no longer think possible. Moreover its situatedness in past history makes Christianity necessarily sexist. In our religion, she argues, our relation to the past must be what it is in every other sphere. Dr Hampson gives a 'reading' from a feminist perspective of major paradigms of past theology: transcendent monotheism; covenant, sacrifice and incarnation; and God conceived of as Trinity. She demonstrates that the masculinist construal of 'woman' and of femininity has been pivotal to the whole, while it has been fatal to women. In what is the heart of the book, Dr Hampson proceeds to explore how, drawing on our experience of that dimension of reality which is God, we should conceptualize what God may be. A final chapter is devoted to a discussion of the ethical context of the lived life within which such a spirituality may flourish.
