This interdisciplinary consideration of women in world religions features new scholarship across traditions and approaches.
The Annual Review of Women in World Religions is polymethodic, interdisciplinary, and multitraditional in its approach to the study of women and religion. It not only allows the comparative dimension to appear in bolder relief, but also helps to establish a dialogue between the two solitudes of humanistic and social scientific studies in the field. The book encourages women and men of all beliefs to participate in the on-going dialogue that it represents and promotes.
