Christian Feminism Today Blogs
Our Christian Feminism Today blogs offer our visitors a unique opportunity to read the words of contemporary Christian feminists (of all ages!) as they discuss a variety of compelling topics.
FemFaith is an intergenerational conversation among three Christian feminists: Kendra Weddle Irons, Melanie Springer Mock, and Letha Dawson Scanzoni. The name comes from our desire to be “feminists, faithfully” and to show how our Christian faith and our feminism connect, draw upon, and foster growth in both areas.
Reta’s Reflections is a series of Bible studies taught by Reta Halteman Finger. Whether she is teaching in a college or seminary classroom, or speaking to her readers through the pages of a book, or addressing attendees at an EEWC-Christian Feminism Today conference, Reta generously shares her gifts as a biblical scholar and communicator. Through this blog, an even wider audience can benefit from her insights. She is especially skilled in relating the Bible to today’s issues and in getting others involved in discussing the material she presents.
ViewPoint is a blog in which different writers express their personal perspectives on various topics of current interest. It’s a blog of many voices.
ViewPoint is a forum for discussion. The Latin word forum referred to the ancient Roman public square, where people assembled to address matters of significance.
ViewPoint essays stand on their own and can address anything the writer is thinking about if the chosen topic would be of interest to Christian feminists. There’s a change of writers from post to post, unlike our other blogs which feature the same “regulars” in ongoing presentations or conversations.
The 72-27 blog was written by Letha Dawson Scanzoni and Kimberly B. George. As they launched it in the summer of 2008, they were aware that the digits of their respective ages were exactly reversed. Letha was 72 and Kimberly was 27, hence the title and the numeric nicknames they use for their posts.
Some of the most recent 72-27 posts are linked below.
