  • Athena to Barbie: Bodies, Archetypes, and Women's Search for Self

    Athena to Barbie: Bodies, Archetypes, and Women's Search for Self

    Athena to Barbie destabilizes a range of received social constructions of woman and expands the ways women conceive of themselves as female subjects. In the end, it inspires women's imagination about themselves, grounds that imagination in history by comparison, and empowers the lived lives of women. The book challenges the long-standing subordination of women and offers women fruitful, if still vexed, options to express female agency. It does all this in conversation with Christian tradition.

  • The Fragility of Language and the Encounter with God: On the Contingency and Legitimacy of Doctrine

    The Fragility of Language and the Encounter with God: On the Contingency and Legitimacy of Doctrine

    The Fragility of Language and the Encounter with God offers a theological account of the contingency of language and perception and of how acknowledging that contingency transforms the question of the development of doctrine. Klug argues that statements of faith cannot overcome contingency. Instead, the Catholic notion of receptive tradition is an attempt to cope rationally with the fragility of perception and language in humanity's orientation toward God.
