This book sets out to examine the ambigous relationship that Christianity has with the body. Incarnation is central to Christian belief but that doctrine has not encouraged a positive theology of the body. The authors explore why this has been so and examine ways in which a more bosy-positive theology can be developed using our Christian heritage. Starting from a feminist perspective they reclaim women's bodies from the embrace of patriarchy and in doing so clearly show how this reclamation challenges many systems of opression. This work illustrates that the personal is political, even in therology! Lisa Isherwood is Senior Lecturer in Theology at the University College of St Mark and St John, Plymouth. Elizabeth Stuart is Professor of Christian Theology at King Alfred's College, Winchester.
