              Religious and spiritual engagement has undergone multiple significant changes in recent decades. Researching Female Faith is a collection of essays based on recent and original field research conducted by the contributors, and informed by a variety of theoretical perspectives, in...to the faith lives of women and girls - broadly from within a Christian context. Essays describe and recount original qualitative research that identifies, illuminates and enhances our understanding of key aspects of women's and girls' faith lives. Offered as a contribution to feminist practical and pastoral theology, the essays arise out of and feed back into a range of mainly UK pastoral and practical contexts. While the essays in this volume will contribute to an enhanced appreciation and analysis of female faith, the core focus is on feminist qualitative research methods and methodology. Thus, they demystify and illuminate the process of research, including features of research which are frequently under-examined. This book is a first in that it examines and explains qualitative research methodology for practical theologians, researchers and practitioners with interests in gender and faith. It will, therefore, be of great interest to students and academics in Theology, Religious Studies and Sociology.

              Reimagining Theologies of Marriage in Contexts of Domestic Violence: When Salvation is Survival
               

              Reimagining Theologies of Marriage in Contexts of Domestic Violence: When Salvation is Survival (Hardback)

              Domestic violence is a significant threat to women's survival. But Christian understandings of marriage often prevent women from resisting abusive relationships. Can the Church's teaching on marriage be reshaped so that it helps women to survive, rather than encourage them to sub...mit to their husband, bear their cross, or sacrifice themselves for the sake of their marriage? Focusing on everyday practices of marriage in two very different contexts: the United Kingdom and Argentina, When Salvation is Survival considers how Christian understandings of marriage as a covenant or sacrament relate to the lived experience of marriage. Drawing on Augustine's notion of the goods of marriage, and on belief in the saving power of marriage, it suggests that only when the wellbeing of bodies is central to a marriage can it have the power to save.

              Sharing Friendship: Exploring Anglican Character, Vocation, Witness and Mission (Hardback, New edition)

              By Thomson, John B.; Series edited by Astley, Jeff; Francis, Revd Canon Leslie J.; Percy, Very Revd Prof. Martyn; Slee, Dr. Nicola

              Sharing Friendship represents a post-liberal approach to ecclesiology and theology generated out of the history, practices and traditions of the Anglican Church. Drawing on the theological ethics of Stanley Hauerwas, this book explores the way friendship for the stranger emerges ...from contextually grounded reflection and conversations with contemporary Anglican theologians within the English tradition, including John Milbank, Oliver Oa (TM)Donovan, Rowan Williams, Daniel Hardy and Anthony Thiselton. Avoiding abstract definitions of character, mission or friendship, John Thomson explores how the history of the English Church reflects a theology of friendship and how discipleship in the New Testament, the performance of worship, and the shape of Anglican ecclesiology are congruent with such a theology. The book concludes by rooting the theme of sharing friendship within the self-emptying kenotic performance of Jesusa (TM) mission, and looks at challenges to the character of contemporary Anglican ecclesiology represented by secularization and globalization as well as by arguments over appropriate new initiatives such as Fresh Expressions.
