Suggested reading list
These readings were suggested for conference participants who wanted to learn more about womanist, feminist and mujerista theologies prior to the conference.
Transformative Lutheran Theologies Video
Filmed at the Transformative Lutheran Theologies conference in January 2009, the video provides a basic introduction to theology from women’s points of view. A study guide and English and Spanish transcripts are also available. Printed copies also available.
Transformative Lutheran Theologies Book
Finally! The book with the 2009 conference papers is available. With many new chapters added to the conference proceedings, this book holds some of the most exciting recent work from Lutheran perspectives in systematic theological subjects, such as the doctrine of God, sin and grace, christology and the Holy Spirit. The contributors seek to be faithful to the witness of the Christian tradition and the central wager of the Protestant Reformation—justification by grace through faith—while at the same time raising the critical and constructive wager that all humans are equally created, broken and redeemed. Taking this equality to heart changes how theology is done and what theology says. (from the introduction to Transformative Lutheran Theologies) Read more. Order online.
