Listening to the voice of women in the church

Take a look at your christian books.
How many are by women?
What ratio women to men?

Mine is about 1:50

Please list your best theological book written by a fmale

Maria Harris (1996). Proclaim Jubilee!: A spirituality for the 21st century. Westminster John Knox Press, Louisville, Kentucky. With a foreword by Walter Brueggemann.

Highly recommended by me as well for what that's worth... Refreshingly thoughtful stuff on scriptural theme of jubilee, esp in relation to forgiveness and restitution, liberation, justice, land care. US context but we have huge similarities e.g. unacknowledged colonial sins

I'd love to hear other people's recommendations too! Are you going to disclose your favourite, mike?

I just looked at the pile of books on my desk and those sitting on the shelf immediately above my desk. Ratio cannot be calculated because you're not allowed to divide by zero, on pain of the destruction of the universe (that's what my maths teacher taught me).
