Kathlyn A. Breazeale, Associate Professor of Religion at Pacific Lutheran University
"The most influential ideas informing marriage are incontestably traditional Christian ones. Kathlyn Breazeale, reframes marriage in light of a generation of theological insights, from feminists and process theologians. She shows how a recast theology of marriage can move marriage from unequal power and violence to mutual empowerment. In successive chapters Breazeale unfolds both the classical and alternate traditions on crucial ideas such as sin and redemption, body and soul, and sexuality and spirituality. The volume culminates in a theology of mutual empowerment and redemption through intimacy for marriage partners."
