Summary This title tells the story of Katharine Bushnell (1855-1946), a remarkable figure in the history of Anglo-American social reform, women's rights, and feminist theology. A book of history, biography, and historical theology, 'A New Gospel for Women' demonstrates both the promises and perils of Christian feminism - particularly the challenges confronting those today who wish to construct a sexual ethic that is both Christian and feminist, and one suited to the realities of the modern world.
