Jeannine Hill Fletcher

A Fordham University Press Publication

Bordering Religions

  • Jeannine Fletcher Hill is becoming quite well known among feminist theologians for her first book--Monopoly on Salvation? A Feminist Approach to Religious Pluralism (Continuum, 2005). This expands and extends the approach developed there.
  • This book presents a comparative theology based on believing women's experience rather than on texts alone. It is thus a useful corrective to the more usual approaches in comparative theology.
  • It draws on three historical encounters between women of different faiths: first, the archives of the Maryknoll Sisters working in China before the Second World War; second, the experiences of women in the first wave of the feminist movement in the United States; and third, the contemporary Philadelphia Area Women's Multifaith Group.
