About the Author

Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza (Dr. Theol., University of Munster, Germany) is Krister Stendahl Professor of Scripture and Interpretation, Harvard Divinity School, USA. Fiorenza was the first woman to be elected President of the Society of Biblical Literature.


This is a most welcome reissue of Schussler Fiorenza's groundbreaking work. With analysis of women's experience as the starting point, Schussler Fiorenza uses vivid images such as "into the hill country," and "the open road to Galilee," to invite readers into new spaces where images of Christ in the Scriptures can be explored from a different perspective and christological discourses can be reconceptualized toward liberating practice. For those willing to embark on the journey with her, the destination is no less than global well-being. * Barbara E. Reid, Catholic Theological Union, USA *
In this new edition of her deep and influential book, Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza continues her singuar retrieval of the bibilcal figure of Sophia for contemporary theology. As this book demonstrates, Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza has for many of us herself become a Sophia figure of our period continuously contributing her wisdom over and over again. * David Tracey, The University of Chicago Divinity School, USA *
