God is described in mescaline language in Scripture and Christian literature. The image of God as male is dominant not only in our theology but also in our daily conversation. We always refer to God as male. The Bible is a product of a patriarchal society where women’s voice is diminished. Theologians have continued to ignore women experiences and contribution to biblical theology. The second part of the class offers an introduction to feminist theology by emphasizing the role of gender and sexuality within this theology. Learn the reason behind Christian feminists developing a theology with a purpose to reinterpret the scriptures and church traditions in the context of patriarchal culture.
