Sex, Sin, and Our Selves
Encounters in Feminist Theology and Contemporary Women’s Literature
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Anna Fisk's 'theological bone collage' is a work of vivid and sensuous writerliness that is narratively rich and theologically adventurous. Weaving together fragments from feminist fiction and theology, she offers a close reading of the fiction of British feminists Sara Maitland and Michele Roberts in ways that open up core issues in contemporary feminist theology. Resisting systematization and idealized notions of purity or closure, Fisk explores honestly some key tensions in contemporary feminist theology around gender, sexuality, sin, and salvation."
--Nicola Slee, research fellow of The Queen's Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Education, Edgbaston, Birmingham
"Anna Fisk presents the reader with not merely an adventure in contemporary feminist literature, but also the possibility of a new theology that is creative and alive to the postmodern condition. She achieves this through a form of writing that is at once academically disciplined and at the same time deeply rooted in her own life and experience. This is a remarkable achievement for a scholar in the early years of her career. This is a beautifully written and original work."
--David Jasper, professor of literature and theology, University of Glasgow
