Cristina Lledo Gomez

Paulist Press

The Church as Woman and Mother demonstrates how we have inherited gendered images for the Church that derive from particular contexts and that the loss of these contexts makes the images devoid of the depth that they possessed originally. Ancient Roman concepts such as virginity, marriage, and motherhood, projected onto the Church, actually pointed to positive concepts. Examples of these concepts are the cultivation of virtues, the affirmation of bodies and sex, and the call to active participation of the entire community.

The concept of virgin-motherhood itself is a stumbling block for many Christian women today and yet for the early Christians, aware of the implications from ancient Rome, virginity as producing spiritual/moral fecundity made perfect sense.

Amos Yong

WJK Books


Theology the attempt to come to a deeper, more faithful understanding of one’s encounter with God is something to which all Christians are called. In Learning Theology, Amos Yong invites the reader to lay claim to that calling and to see it as yet another opportunity to love God.

Written for those taking their first course in the subject, this book introduces the foundational sources and tasks of theology. It asks what difference theology makes in our lives, how it can influence the way we write and study, and how we understand other forms of learning as part of the Spirit’s leadership. Yong encourages the reader to see all of life through the lens of faith, and Learning Theology offers tools to more thoughtfully and faithfully perform that task.
