“This deeply interconnected collection of essays offers fresh perspectives on the challenges of comprehending the relations between power and agency, authority and love. Feminist theology has always rejected binary separations between these spheres and stresses the painful but necessary task of accommodating their entanglement in human and divine relations. What the authors in this work achieve are vivid, culturally located and accountable representations of loving as ‘power transformed’ and ‘transforming power’.”
