Review of Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza, In Memory of Her: A Feminist Theological Reconstruction of Christian Origins

West, Cornel

Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza's In Memory of Her is a ground-breaking work. For the first time, we have a powerful defense of new theological emancipatory models of hermeneutics, critical method, and historical reconstruction and an application of these models in one book. This intentional traversing of academic disciplines—theology, ethics, church history, and biblical studies—for the pursuit of knowledge and empowerment of women represents a coming of age for liberation theology. In this essay, I shall focus solely on Schüssler Fiorenza's hermeneutical and methodological formulations, without losing sight of her broader concerns.
