Ten Important Women Theologians To Start Reading

In honor of Women’s History Month, here is our recommended list of women theologians that you should be reading and talking about.

 
One of the great challenges of the theological academy in the twenty-first century is that it is still dominated by males. We have reviewed many recent books by these women theologians, and will continue to read and review their work.
 

NOTE: We are defining theology broadly here, to include biblical studies, ethics, etc.

 

These theologians are arranged in alphabetical order by their last names… 
 

Emilie Townes

The Rev. Dr. Emilie M. Townes, a distinguished scholar and leader in theological education, is dean of Vanderbilt Divinity School. She is also the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of Womanist Ethics and Society. Townes’ broad areas of expertise include Christian ethics, cultural theory and studies, postmodernism and social postmodernism. She has been a pioneering scholar in womanist theology, a field of studies in which the historic and current insights of African American women are brought into critical engagement with the traditions of Christian theology. Townes has a strong interest in thinking critically about womanist perspectives on issues such as health care, economic justice, poetry and literary theory.
