Women Encounter God' is one of the first books to explore the commonalities and convergences of women's theologies in the Americas. This critical, comparative analysis of white feminist, womanist, and 'mujerista' theologies focuses on how, by placing their unique theologies in dialogue, the rich contributions of each theology can inform the others. By looking at the key themes of empowerment, embodiment, and relationality, Moody examines how three different types of feminist theologians perceive God. She discusses the works of such representative theologians as white feminists Mary Daly, Rosemary Ruether, Sally McFague, and Carter Heyward; Hispanic/Latina theologians Ada Maria Isasi-Diaz, Yolanda Tarango, and Elsa Tamez; and womanist theologians Delores Williams, Jacquelyn Grant, and Katie Geneva Cannon, as well as feminist theorists Chela Sandoval and Rosemary Tong.

Linda A. Moody is Dean of Academic Affairs and Professor of Humanities at Antioch University in Los Angeles. She received her Ph.D. in systematic and philosophical theology and philosophy of religion at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley.From Booklist:
Moody's review of feminist, mujerista, and womanist theologies will serve as an introduction for readers unfamiliar with the work of the practitioners she describes. Her excellent bibliography and references provide plenty of pointers for readers who wish to learn more about the theologies and theologians introduced here. The subtitle, Theology across the Boundaries of Difference, defines the work. Even as she recognizes important differences in attention to race, class, and sexual orientation, she searches for commonalities that enable theological practice and communication across boundaries. Moody takes Audre Lorde's criticism of Mary Daly to heart and studiously avoids universalizing her particular experience. This means more attention to "particular" or "personal" experience than is typical of academic writing, but the writing remains academic, with all the accompanying strengths and weaknesses. As is often true of academic writing at its best, this is an excellent map--not a substitute for exploring the territory, but of use to readers unfamiliar with it as well as to those who have lived in it a long time.
